Eketahuna Primary School


All children are expected to take part in our physical education and fitness programme, unless they bring a note or we receive a phone call, explaining why they cannot take part.

A range of interschool sports tournaments occur throughout the year weather permitting. The school has T shirts and tracksuits which are worn when our students are competing where appropriate. Parents are encouraged to purchase a school shirt for such events.


Our Community feels water safety is important and all children should learn to swim. We are lucky enough to have a heated pool which operates in Term 1 and Term 4. We provide all students with daily swimming lessons at school. Trained instructors run daily sessions Monday to Thursday. This comes under the Health & Wellbeing Curriculum and just like all other learning areas, students will be expected to participate. Please make sure your children bring their togs and towel daily.

We support, challenge and build confident, connected and actively involved life long learners.
