Sport Information

 

INTRODUCTION: 

Onehunga High School has a rich tradition of sporting achievement and participation across a number of sports in Auckland, regional and national competitions.  Every student at Onehunga High School has the opportunity to get involved in one or more of the many sports offered. These include summer and winter sports, and both individual and team sports. Sport can help students develop skills such as leadership, discipline, team work and commitment.  In addition to the formal inter-school competitions that teams compete in the school offers in-school sporting events such as cross country and athletics days and inter-class lunchtime sports.  Social sport competitions outside of school hours are also a way for students to involve themselves in non-competitive sport.

Behaviour

 

Students are expected to behave appropriately at all times when participating in co-curricular activity. Students are representing the school and are expected to wear the uniform and school badge with pride.

 

Permission

 

Students will need to complete and sign a consent form and a sports contract to be able to participate in co-curricular activities. This will also need to be taken home and signed by a parent / caregiver. This will provide the school with important contact details and any necessary medical information.

 

Transport

 

If students are using their own car (and have the appropriate licence) to get to and from co-curricular activities, they must have the permission of a parent / caregiver, and do so at their own risk.   Even if a student has a full licence they will not be allowed to transport other students to and from the activities unless prior arrangements are made with the Sports Director.

 

Uniform

 

The Sports Department will provide uniforms for most sports – however students may need to wear PE uniform for some events and competitions. Items including red school socks, black shorts / skirts and mouth-guards may also need to be purchased in order to participate. These can be purchased from Mr. Coombes in the Sports Office.

 

Coaching / Managing

 

If you, or any other community member you know, would like to get involved as a coach, manager or official, please see or contact the Sports Office for more information.

 

School attendance

 

Sport is a vital part of school life at Onehunga High School, and all students who are involved in sport at school are expected to maintain a high standard of behaviour and attendance at school. 

 

If students have not attended at least 85% of all their classes (including Kaitiaki Time), then they will be stood down from sport until they have rectified the issue. Classroom attendance is very important to the Sports Department and we believe that all sports students should have a good balance between sports and their academic programme.

 

If a student is, absent from classes on a game day they are not allowed to play sport that day, unless they have contacted the Sports Department and given an acceptable reason.

 

Payment of Sports Costs:

 

Students must pay their sports fee by the 1st May. Students who have not paid their sports cost will not represent Onehunga High School in sport until they have done so. The payment can be a one off payment of $40/80, or you can set up an Automatic Payment to pay the cost at a pace that is manageable. We allow students to play if a payment plan is in place. School Account Number is: 12-3025-0210550-00 ASB.

 

College Sport Auckland now have an APP for Sport so all Parents/Students and staff can access draws, results and information anywhere any time. Make sure you download to keep up with the season ahead. 

 

If you have any questions, please contact the Sports Department. We are located through the double doors from the hall foyer (in the same area as the nurses and guidance team). The phone number for the Sports Department is (09) 636 6006 ext. 8048 or 8049, cellphone 027 2462448, or ccoombes@ohs.school.nz
