Motueka High School is committed to promoting and encouraging participation and excellence in our sporting students in recreational or competitive sports.

We provide exciting opportunities for our students with our facilities here at school.  These include – gymnasium, fitness centre, dance studio, swimming pool, new multi-purpose artificial sports turf and fields for cricket, rugby and football.

We have an annual Sports Exchange with Buller High School in Westport where each school will host the exchange biannually.  The student sports committee promotes and encourages participation for all students to enjoy lunchtime activities.  This gives students an opportunity to participate and have fun in a non-competitive way.

We encourage school spirit by holding our School Sports Day early in the year between our four houses – Nuku (Green), Wai (Blue), Ahi (Red) and Angi (Yellow).

School championships are held for Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country.  At the completion of the school year, a Sports Prizegiving is held to celebrate the success of our sporting students.

Motueka High School has an impressive record of success in sporting competitions at local, regional, and national levels. We have a proud history of New Zealand Representatives in both individual and team sports. 

Currently, Motueka High School is proud to have two ex-students reach the pinnacle of sport: Olympic Bronze Jonelle Price (nee Richards) Equestrian London 2012 and Olympic Gold Medallist Risaleaana Pouri-Lane Women's Rugby 7's Tokyo 2020.
