Wainuiomata High School recognises the role of sporting activities in providing students with valuable learning experiences outside of the classroom.
Our Sports Department has a director and a full time sports co-ordinator whose roles are to oversee all sports and co-curricular activities at the School, encourage students to be involved, promote new sports and physical activities and observe the "Fair Play" charter.
Wainuiomata High School has a strong tradition of achievement in many sporting codes and is proud of its many provincial and national representatives, such as All Blacks (Tana Umaga, Piri Weepu, Neemia Tialata) and Kiwi league player Paul Whatuira.
