Pukekohe High School has a proud history of participation and achievement in sport at local, regional and national levels. We believe it is an important dimension of the young person’s education, particularly at secondary school level. We encourage students to participate in a wide range of activities outside the classroom to further develop physical, mental and social skills. They build students’ self-esteem and confidence, and this can be reflected in greater effort and achievement in the classroom.

Here at Pukekohe High School we have 34 sports on offer catering to individuals and teams. Our students successfully compete in regional and national codes that are offered by College Sport and School Sport NZ; from the more traditional sports like Netball, Cricket, Rowing, Basketball and Rugby, through to Lacrosse, Waka Ama, Weightlifting and Lawn Bowls.

Our passionate and enthusiastic Sports Department, with support from coaches, teachers and parents, put hard mahi in to ensure students achieve their sporting goals.
