Sports at PPS

Pāpāmoa Primary School provides various sporting opportunities for students, including a 25m heated pool, sports fields, multipurpose sports turf, and proximity to reserves and the beach.

The school encourages students to try different sports without limiting them to one. They aim to equip students with the necessary skills, attitudes, and motivation for personal well-being, community involvement, and individual sporting and cultural pathways.

The school also welcomes parent involvement in coaching or managing teams.

Kapa Haka

We are very proud to have Kapa Haka as a vehicle to support all tauira (students) connect to Te Ao Māori me ōna Tikanga. It enhances kōtahitanga (unity), manaakitanga (nurturing and care for each other), whanaungatanga (connection) and tuakiritanga (identity).

Every Friday, our kapa (groups) hold practice sessions for both Juniors and Seniors starting at 11am. Additionally, Te Manawanui Reorua (bilingual) classes also engage in Kapa Haka as part of their daily whanaungatanga time.

Students will also showcase their talents at various events such as Pōwhiri, Matariki, Rā Whakangahau or other local celebrations. These opportunities allow our tamariki to demonstrate their skills and contribute to the spirit of these occasions.


Jump Jam

Jump Jam is a fun way for students to keep fit through dance and aerobics-based movement. Each year we select leaders from our Year 5 and 6 students, who learn and practice routines and then run lunchtime sessions for the rest of the school to join in. There will also be the opportunity some years for a competition team to be selected to prepare for and perform in Jump Jam Challenge, a national competition with live performances.


Showquest is a celebration of Arts and Culture. Students will have the opportunity to audition to be a dancer, actor, be involved in making props and costumes, even to be lighting designers. Students help to flesh out our concept, choreograph the dances, and design the costumes, props and lighting. After a full term of practice, preparation and hard work, the performers and lighting designers head to a theatre to perform to a live audience and compete against other schools in the Bay of Plenty.
