Sport

Sir Edmund Hillary Middle School has a proud sporting history which features numerous students who have become professional athletes.

The Middle School provides over 12 different sports throughout the year and every student is encouraged to participate throughout their time at the Middle School. With an extensive range of sports on offer and with a focus on long-term healthy lifestyle choices, students are supported to unlock their potential and expand their talents. Student participation is an important aspect of the Middle School. The new house system has been designed to maximise participation and incorporates such events as The Haka Competition, Athletics, and Swimming.

Our Sports programme is used as a vehicle to install important values such as Commitment, Communication, Dedication & Team Work while staying Humble, not only when participating in Sports, but also while Learning in the classroom and/or presenting themselves in our Community.

Our results in sport speak volumes and we are often in the top three schools of Auckland Area Championships. We are very competitive in the South Eastern Zone (SEZ) Sports Tournaments constantly every year and the highlights of our accomplishments can be found on our Youtube Channel at: Sir Edmund Hillary Middle School Channel

The Department comprises of Sport Administrators and Co-ordinators who actively support all Teachers in Charge of each sport to deliver a large range of sports through positive engagement with student athletes. These people include: Manu Ngakuru-Syder (Coach & Sports Co-ordinator); Daniel Leaupepe (Coach); Rani Leaupepe (Media Co-ordinator); Liz Tangaere (Sports Team Administrator)
