We have many sporting children who attend Ormond School. We give every child a chance to be involved and have a go. We have very successful Saturday morning Soccer teams and many children participate in the cricket season over summer. We have a high number of children involved in the Gisborne/East Coast gymnastics festival held every May. Our students also participate in many Interschool sporting events: triathlon; swimming; athletics; rugby, netball, soccer tournaments; cross country and rippa rugby competitions.
Students can participate in Soccer, Rugby, Cricket, Netball and Hockey either through schools or club teams for Saturday morning sports. We encourage positive team support and welcome any parents who are willing to be coaches.
We have a strong history of cultural endeavours at Ormond School. We have had many past Interschool Speech competition winners and every child from the age of 5 has a chance to address an audience.
Every 3 years we put on a major production with huge input from our students both on stage and behind the scenes. These productions are very much looked forward to and contain music, dance and drama!
Our Kapa Haka students perform every year at the Tairawhiti Kapa Haka Festival in November.
