To ensure teams run successfully, parent helpers are always needed for coaching, umpiring and managing sports teams. Notices will be sent home prior to sports teams being formed, to ascertain the level of parent help the school requires.

Sport Days

Sports Days at St Michael’s are a wonderful way for your child to participate in different sporting activities. They are held in terms 1, 3 and 4 for swimming, cross country and athletics respectively.

We cannot run these events successfully without parent help. Dates for sports days will be on the term Calendar, and notices requesting parent help will be sent home prior to the events.

In years 4, 5 and 6, children who have achieved well in sports days will be given the opportunity to represent St Michael’s at the Remuera and Catholic Schools Zones competitions. Parent help may be needed for these events. Notices will be sent home with children that are participating.
