School sport is much more than a pastime and healthy activity: it is also the context in which students can experience success and failure, realise their dreams and aspirations, and strengthen their teamwork skills and camaraderie in pursuit of their goals
The sports field provides many opportunities for personal development, and sport – be it social or competitive – is widely recognised as a means of developing character. This cannot happen in isolation, however. Character must be taught – it must be taught by coaches, leaders and role models who demonstrate its value both on and off the field.
Dedication and Commitment to Sport
Every Mangaroa student is expected to demonstrate 100% commitment to their sport and display the attributes of good sportsmanship.
