sport Auckland park preparatory school


The emphasis is on participation and the girls are taught to enjoy the game and play to the best of their ability. APPS is a small school and therefore encourages each and every child to be part of all sporting activities offered.

All girls are encouraged to experience the camaraderie and excitement of being a team player and to learn commitment, sportsmanship and pride when representing their school. The girls with sporting potential are given the opportunity to extend themselves and leave APPS skilled and competitively equipped for high school.

The Grade 0 girls are introduced to swimming in terms one and three.

The Grade 1 girls are included in the swimming programme in summer. During the winter months, ball skills are emphasised.

The Grade 2 girls have hockey and netball added to their programme and in Grade 3, tennis is an option.

APPS participates in tennis, hockey and netball league matches and has A, B and C swimming and netball teams.

At APPS we believe that sport is not only necessary to instil team spirit and a healthy way of life, but that many of life’s lessons are learnt on the playing fields.
