At Miramar North School we value sport in all forms.
In a time when rates of participation in teenage sport is declining, it’s crucial we encourage our tamariki to take up ways to keep them physically active. Getting them involved in sport at the primary school level is the perfect way to begin to channel that love all tamariki have for physical activity into something they can continue on into their adult years. We encourage both competitive and non-competitive sports, because all ways we can be physically healthy, such as things like active recreation and non-competitive physical activity for the purpose of wellbeing and enjoyment can be just as rewarding as playing for one of our many MNS teams.
At MNS we weave sport into our classroom programs at all levels of the school and also in numerous other ways. That might be through external providers visiting the school to provide varied sports that our tamariki may not have tried. Or it could be through extra curricular sports teams representing MNS like Basketball, Floorball, Touch, Netball, Athletics and Cross Country.
