Physical Education is an important part of the school programme. All students are encouraged to participate fully in fitness, games and sports. At HPS we aim to give each student contact with as many different sports as possible. Through this, it is hoped they can later choose the sport they prefer at Intermediate, High School and beyond. Contact with other schools and sports teams will be encouraged. We offer both summer and winter school teams where there is sufficient student interest and available coaching. We are always grateful to any parents/caregivers who are able to coach a sports team.
If children genuinely are unable to participate in PE, families must advise the teacher personally or send a note. In Years 4 to 6 children are required to wear a PE uniform which is available from the second hand uniform shop or new from NZ Uniforms.
