Sport at Tahuna

Copy of the letter that has gone out to all Parents

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

At Tahuna, we offer a variety of sports and sporting opportunities both in school and outside of school time. We would like to give you information on the sports offered outside of school time, when they are played, and how much each of these sports generally cost. Cost is an approximate figure as the sporting organisations can increase the cost of team entries from year to year. In regards to costs, please note that permission slips and fees MUST be paid before the first game is played in order for students to remain in the team. This can be organised with the office as being paid in full or through weekly/fortnightly payments. If you have financial hardship that may prohibit participation or if we can help in any way, please contact the school office.

Students are required to complete a sports code of conduct at the beginning of the year to ensure that respect, sportsmanship and positive encouragement are consistent during games and practises.

Furthermore, we have a large number of sporting teams throughout the year, so if you are available or can make games, we would greatly appreciate your support in coaching or managing a team.
