Our Sports Policies

Sports Code of Conduct:

All students and parents are expected to sign and abide by the Schools Sport Code of Conduct accompanying sports registration forms. Representing St Mary’s Catholic Primary school in any sport is an honour and a privilege. We ask that students, parents and spectators demonstrate good sportsmanship, encouragement and offer support to coaches and players throughout the sporting season. Remember that our coaches are volunteers who are giving up their time, without them your child would not be able to participate.

Should you have an issue:
Only coaches or School staff are to liaise directly with officials and/or organisers.
If you have a concern, please do not approach coaches before or during games, wait until they have finished their coaching duties and/or make contact at suitable time.
Please contact me directly if you have any issues, concerns or queries, the sooner I know the sooner I can help.

Sports Uniform Policy:
Players are required to pay a $20 bond for sports uniforms issued by the School.
This is to be paid at the same time as registration and before sports uniform will be issued to your child. School issued uniform MUST be returned at the end of the playing season, even if your child intends to play/use it again for another sport.

If your child’s sports uniform is not returned when requested, you will lose your bond.
You will still need to return the uniform, if it’s not returned you will then be invoiced at replacement value. Your child will not be able to participate in any activities that require school issued uniform until the item/s are returned or the invoice is paid.
A new bond will need to be paid before your child can participate in any school activities that require school issued uniform.

Please read your school newsletter every week, this is where important school notices go including all sports information including when sports uniforms need to be returned and deadline before invoices will be issued. The school newsletter is online, you can request to receive this via email on our School website https://www.stmarysrotorua.school.nz/
