Physical Education & Sport

At Te Ara Koropiko West Spreydon we strive to provide rich learning experiences to ensure that all our tamariki are given opportunities to experience, enjoy, excel and lead physical activity and sport at our kura.
We place emphasis on teaching in, through and about movement. Teachers use the SportStart model which aims to develop fundamental movement and sports skills in combination with critical thinking and communication skills. We are also a member of the Healthy and Active Schools initiative. The Ministry of Education and SportNZ have joined together with us to help improve wellbeing of our tamariki through healthy eating and enhancing quality physical activity.
We want our tamariki to be confident and creative, especially in play. Sport Canterbury has kindly donated to our school a PlayPod filled with items that offer opportunities for engagement in positive, innovative play during break times.
