At Tararua College we encourage all students to participate in the many sporting and recreational activities on offer. These activities may occur socially at lunchtime, after school, or in a competitive competition against other local secondary schools.
Sport and recreation activities provide opportunities to develop effective and valuable interpersonal and leadership skills through the context of physical activity. They foster strong and respectful relationships between staff and students which ultimately creates a supportive and enjoyable learning environment. Finally, sport and recreation activities contribute towards developing school pride and an enjoyment of school life.
Through their participation in sport and recreation activities, many of our students have gone on to become inter-school, regional, island and national representatives. These students, along with our age-group champions, and those in our top teams, are recognised through the presentation of a Tararua College sports badge specific to their achievement.

While these are the current sports and recreation activities offered at Tararua College; any child who wishes to pursue other interests will be supported, wherever possible, to ensure they can represent Tararua College in their chosen area.
