"Sport is a great vehicle for learning about yourself, learning about others, and learning about society. Sport can be a great release, allowing students to go back into the class room and work that bit harder on the things that motivate them. Our aim is for sport to influence every student that passes through Waihi College in this way, to help shape them as they go on to be successful in sport, or any other area."
Waihi College considers Sports and Activities to be very important components of the comprehensive high school curriculum.These experiences greatly enhance a student’s involvement with and enjoyment of his/her high school career, and contribute to a well-rounded and multi-faceted individual.
Sport plays an important role in our schools mission to support and nurture individual students with diverse needs. Using sport and activities as the vehicle, Waihi College endeavours to develop students' confidence and resilience through physical, technical and mental stimulus, and exposure to teamwork and leadership opportunities.
The characteristics targeted through various periods of a student's journey range from openness, respect, inclusivity and enjoyment, to long-term health, self and social awareness and leadership, Waihi College strives to develop more than just a student's play.
Through personal commitment and determination, many of our students excel at sport. We are very proud of our record for sport at Waihi College.

2011 has been a very successful year for many of our sporting teams. This could not have been accomplished without the support of the community volunteers who coach, manage and transport our teams.
Thank you to all who supported Waihi College Sport this year.
A Wine & Cheese Evening will be held on the 3rd November from 4.30pm in recognition of the effort and time that our volunteers have given us.
