WHS Sport Mission Statement and Vision

To meet the needs of all students, no matter their ability in Sport and Recreation. To encourage participation and learning of skills, so students can explore, perform and excel in their chosen sport at a local, regional, national and international level.

Students at Whanganui High School have the opportunity to participate and compete in a wide range of sports and activites. Below you will find details of almost all the sports on offer each year. We also offer the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. The school also has a Hut on Mt Ruapehu and this is often used for training camps for sports teams and the Outdoor Education classes.

We have strong links with a lot of sporting clubs in the region. A few are:

Athletics Wanganui, Braves Softball Club, Aramoho Rowing Club, Wanganui Tennis Club, Peat Park Bowling Club, Wanganui Swimming Club, Cycling Wanganui, Wanganui Boy's and Girls Gym Club, Wanganui Harrier Club, Athletic Football Club and the Wanganui Multisport Club.

We are currently working with Sport Wanganui in relation to the new SPARC lead Kiwisport programme which aims to foster an environment where more school aged youths will be given more opportunities to develop better skills and accessibility to more events.

Additional information about sport in the school is linked via the schools 'Ultranet' site in the top right hand corner of this page. Please click on this and take a look at the other pages avaliable.
