Albany Junior High School is recognised as a leading provider of learning for adolescents. As such, we are always mindful of the physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing of learners in this age group, whilst constantly trying to offer as many opportunities as we can. Sport plays a vital role in our ability to do this and we enjoy high participation rates.
We aim to provide sporting opportunities for every learner and at every level of competition from top-level competitive sports to teams for the novice, and in most codes. We cater for traditional sports, but we also look to provide the widest variety of sports possible from zone days to team competitions and from football to diving.
We are always looking to provide new and different opportunities on top of an already full programme and are regular attendees at the NZ AIMS Games and many other national competitions. We are a competitive force in sport, and we are immensely proud of our achievements, with students competing at local, regional, national, and international levels.
We expect our learners to maintain the highest standards of discipline and sportsmanship, both on and off the field, whilst they strive to fulfil their potential. They are encouraged and supported to ensure that they are able to meet their commitments to their coaches, managers and team mates, demonstrating drive through turning up regularly to training, pushing themselves to their peak and giving their all in games.
Our vision for sports requires substantial commitment from a huge number of volunteers, including staff, parents and students and we thank all of those that have been involved and continue to strive to make sport as successful as possible for all of our learners.
