Whareama School participates in a variety of sports culminating in competitions with other country schools in cross country, athletics and swimming. Students are then chosen to participate in the town and then regional competitions. We also participate in a huge range of sports tournaments and sporting events. Children are also encouraged to participate in a winter and summer sport. Being a small school means that we usually do not need to select teams as we are able to allow everyone to participate in most events.

Education outside the Classroom (EOTC)

This type of instruction is an important part of the curriculum delivery process.  Trips are relevant to the unit study at the time. Year 7 and 8 take part in a senior camp every two years where their outdoor experiences are extended. Every other two years we also have our major school camp.  Parents are asked to sign a permission slip at the beginning of each year covering any local day trips within the Wairarapa.  For any other trips outside the area or overnight separate permission is sought.

Swimming Pool

The swimming pool is available for use by members of the community out of school hours (including holidays) during the summer months. A key to the pool may be purchased from the school office for the swimming season.

Please Note

All primary and pre-school children must be supervised by an adult—18 years or over. The pool rules, as listed on the notice board should be strictly observed.
