Sport at Otumoetai Primary
Welcome to our 2014 sports page.
Thanks to the parents who completed the SWOT analysis for Sport in Term 4 2013. The results from the SWOT will help plan the direction for Sport at OPS for 2014 and beyond.
Otumoetai Primary School provides a comprehensive P.E programme to all children. Alongside the classroom P.E programme there are many opportunities for children to represent OPS in sports teams and sporting events.
All children are encouraged to be involved in organised sport whether it is through Otumoetai Primary School or through an outside club.
