Sporting Opportunites

Pinelands Competitions

Every year we join with other schools in the area in a range of sporting events. Including Cross Country, Swimming, Athletics and Winter Sports.  These events give our children the opportunity to engage with other schools as well as challenging themselves.


We are very fortunate at Whakamaru School to have our own swimming pool that we use throughout the summer months.  We have professional swim instructors who each year come to our school to assist our teachers with their swimming instruction.

Fitness, Hauora/Wellbeing

We have a focus on fitness and well-being at Whakamaru School.  Everyday students participate in fitness and are encouraged to make healthy choices.


Whakamaru School offers weekend Netball and Basketball to students.  Students play against other schools at their year level in Tokoroa on Saturday mornings.

Soccer/Rugby League

Rugby League is offered by the Mangakino Rugby League Club. This is an opportunity that many of our upcoming Rugby League stars have taken up.  Soccer is also available within the community.
