Winning is not everything
Regardless of whether the goal is to win, learn new skills, make friends or just have fun, there is definitely something for everyone. Our students compete with distinction locally and nationally. We encourage and support both participation- orientated athletes and elite athletes.
Sports at BHS
Burnside High School has a proud tradition of competing in both the Secondary Schools Winter and Summer Tournaments at a National and South Island level. Students are also able to represent the school in Swimming, Athletics, Gymnastics and Golf. The school Swimming Sports and Athletic Sports are held in early Term 1. Students who perform well in their chosen events are selected to compete at a regional level, where they can go on to earn a place at South Island and National events. In Term 2, the students take part in the school Cross Country, and again they can, and often do, go on to represent the school in regional and national Cross Country events.
All sports are played across a variety of days and times, and these will be determined by the team that your child plays for. For further information about our extensive sporting opportunities, please refer to the Sport Handbook.
