Provide a world class environment that develops a lifelong passion for all sports and physical activities.
Many of our boys excel in more than one area of sport, and that is because of the opportunities provided by interhouse activities and through encouraging them to move outside their comfort zones, to be the best they can be.
Christ’s College is well known across New Zealand for its competitiveness in a broad range of sports, from traditional team sports to more recreation-based activities. Staff work alongside professional coaches to assist teams and individuals. The House system encourages participation in a wide range of sporting activities which lead boys into new experiences.
Boys are encouraged to enjoy sporting competitions without compromising the highest standards of sportsmanship and fair play. For many students sport is one path to personal satisfaction, understanding the value of endeavour, self-discipline, and other essential features of moral development.
At Christ's College, sport is kept in balance with scholastic and other co-curricular activities but is considered to be a part of school life in which many boys can excel.
Sport is compulsory in both summer and winter for Year 9 - 13 students.
