SPORTS

At Morrinsvillle College, we offer a wide range of sports and encourage our students to play to the best of their ability in at least one of these sports.  We provide an opportunity for our students to apply and develop skills in a competitive or social environment.

Through the teacher-in-charge of each sport, we set out to provide to the best of our ability arrangements for good credible coaches and managers to be put in place. This allows students to experience the benefits associated with physical activity and team sports such as teamwork, co-operation, reliability, sportsmanship and the building of self-confidence and a good self-image
