Sport at Howick College is an integral part of a student's development, and aims to reinforce the school's supportive learning environment, and our values of courtesy, commitment, courage and curiosity.

 

Our sport programme caters for all abilities, whether the students are playing sport socially with their friends, or as a member of one of our nationally successful sports teams such as Sevens, Rowing or Underwater Hockey.

 

Sport has a positive impact on young people's physical health and international evidence suggests that increased participation in sport and physical activity can lead to improved academic and social outcomes, benefiting students, schools and communities. This is why Howick College is a founding school in the implementation of the Sport in Education project (SIE).

A Word From Our Premier Team Captains...

Nani Waqaira (Prem Netball Captain)

The Howick College Netball Prem 1 team had a great start to the season last Saturday with a solid win of 37-28 against Westlake Girls Prem. We were especially pleased with our team defense in the second half. This put pressure on the opposition allowing us to create a lot of turnover ball and convert each one of them. The movement of the ball was also much better in the second half of the game and we connected really well in the last quarter which is what gave us the win. There is still room for improvement, but I am proud of the team's effort and the way we fought till the last whistle. Thanks to our supporters on the day, we really appreciate you.  Next Saturday's game is at the Auckland Netball Courts and we would love to see you there!

 

Alex Howearth (1st XV Captain)
Last Saturday, Howick College 1st  XV rugby clashed against MAGS with a final score of  26-3 to Howick. We were really happy with our overall defense and managed to keep the opposition try-less. The scrums worked well and we even managed to win a few opposition scrums. The front line work created by the forwards made space for our backs to exploit the defense and score 4 tries. Going forward, there are opportunities to improve our line outs as winning the ball is crucial in rugby. There were far too many penalties conceded against us, particularly penalties around the ruck. Overall, it was good to see the huge team spirit from the boys and it was a great result on home turf. Thanks to our supporters on the day. If you would like to come along and support us next Saturday, our game is at midday at Papatoetoe High School.
