Sporting Opportunities

At MIS there are a range of sporting opportunities for your child to become involved in. There is an expectation that all students will participate in regular P.E sessions and house sporting competitions. Other opportunities are available for your child to participate in and may incur a fee.

Out of School Sport
Our school has teachers who organise and facilitate cricket, touch rugby, hockey and netball. Your child will need to read the Daily Notices to attend meetings to sign up for these codes. All other after school and weekend sports are facilitated by local clubs.

MIS is a member of the Waikato Intermediate School’s sports group. Students can trial for different sports, during lunchtimes, to be selected for teams that represent our school at these events. Some of the events include: cricket, touch rugby, volleyball, athletics, rugby 7’s, netball, football, softball, basketball, cross country and tennis. There are additional competitions that we enter including bowls and ripper rugby.

Each year we send over 100 students to Tauranga and Mt Maunganui to compete in the NZ AIMS Games. This opportunity is available to Year 7 and 8 students, across 20 individual and team sporting codes. This is an amazing event with over 8,000 competitors. It is the first opportunity many children will have had to attend a national event, and compete against children their own age from all over New Zealand.

Winter Olympics
In term 4, Year 7 students will have the opportunity to trial to be selected to be a member of our Winter Olympics team for the following year. This opportunity is for Year 8’s only.
