Encouraging children to become physically active is a priority at Abbotsford School. Children receive specialist teaching in Physical Education each week. In addition to this lesson we have a Sports Activator who works with each class once a fortnight. The Sports Activator also connects us with local sporting clubs and arranges additional coaching opportunities.
We offer a wide range of sporting opportunities. Children compete in the Otago triathlon, cross country, athletics and swimming competitions. We also have a friendly competition with local schools in rugby, soccer, netball and cricket.
Children have the opportunity to join the following teams which play in after school and weekend competitions:
- Flippa Ball
- Touch Rugby
