Sports

Sacred Heart College is able to offer a extensive range of co-curricular activities. These activities complement the academic achievement of students and assist in producing well-rounded young women.
Many students come to us with sporting aspirations and talents. Our aim is to acknowledge, foster and develop these by encouraging participation as well as excellence. 

Many of our teams and athletes excel at provincial and national level. Personal fitness and healthy activity are encouraged, and an interest in leisure activities is fostered for the years beyond school.

Annual college sports days are held for swimming and athletics and all students are encouraged to participate in these at an appropriate level.

The College has adopted the “Fair Play” Charter with the motto “Play Hard, Play Fair” and believes that through participation in team sports many valuable and character-building life skills are learned.

Sports exchanges provide many girls with the opportunities for competition outside Hawke’s Bay and they enjoy the broadening experiences that participation provides.
We at Sacred Heart College aim to provide as many sporting opportunities as possible. We also try to involve the girls in the different sporting events around the region. 

 Please visit the Sport Hawke's Bay website for a calendar of events coming up in Hawke's Bay. If there are any events that your daughter wishes to participate in and these are not already being advertised at Sacred Heart please get in contact with the Sports Coordinator.
