Sport

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.

We hope that you find opportunities to participate in our school sports offerings; whether you are in to win, or have fun and learn new skills, we welcome all skill levels and sporting goals to Pukekohe High School sports. We also encourage students as coaches, managers, and officials.

How do I register for sport?

Sports Uniforms

Full correct sports uniforms only, are acceptable and are to be worn at all times when participating in any PHS Sports teams. Any player incorrectly dressed may not take the field/pitch/court.

Some teams including our Premier teams are required to travel in Dress Uniform and this can be worn on Wednesday’s during Term 2 & 3. The Rugby 1st XV team are able to wear their Dress Uniform on Friday’s.

Practises or Games

Sickness or injuries are acceptable excuses for not participating in games or practises for sport, but you must contact your coach, manager or team captain as soon as possible. Please allow a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of injury if you cannot participate in an upcoming game. Even if you are injured, you are still expected to attend practise to learn team drills, tactics and support the team.

Reporting Success

If you are competing in an outside of school sport or representative team, please let us know about it. We like to share the successes of our students with our wider community and would also like to promote events for students to attend.

Please email our Sports Team at:

Parent help and Support

As you are all well aware, to be able to successfully create opportunities for our students to both participate (either socially or competitively) and enhance their sport performance level requires the services of many personnel in various roles. We would gladly appreciate any assistance that either you or anyone else you know could offer, whether it be in c coaching, managing or officiating capacity.

All volunteers will be required to be Police vetted and fully vaccinated at this time. An application form to drive the PHS van will also be required for some sports.
