School Clubs and Sports
Every Thursday lunch time, Mr C opens the senior school science laboratory for our junior school students to be dazzled by scientific investigations and hands on experiments. This is a ‘must join’ club, full of fun learning for our Junior School by our amazing action packed Science teacher – Mr C!
Ever heard the saying – only a surfer knows the feeling? Well if you want to find out what it means or you already know and like the feeling… the Raglan area School surf club, known as the SeaDogs might be your chance to score some epic waves.
The group is open to all students and meets every Wednesday after school. We travel to the beach or Manu Bay (depending on the conditions) by school mini bus and return to school around 4.30pm. Once per year we embark on the legendary SeaDogs Surf Camp to wherever the waves are pumping.
The club has some equipment available for students to use. If you have your own gear Surfboards and wetsuits can be stored at school on the day. Please see Mr C for an application letter. Parents and caregivers welcome.
Raglan Area Junior School Western Cluster
Raglan Area School is fortunate to be a member of a cluster of schools residing in the Western wing of the Waikato province. These Kura include Te Uku, Te Mata, Te Kōwhai, Horotiu, Waitetuna, Whatawhata, Rotokauri and Raglan Area. Each school term these Western Cluster Kura come together to provide sporting, academic and creative opportunities for students to showcase their talents. These opportunities provide for students of all ages that is new entrant through to years 8 and include codes such as Swimming, Cross country, Football and Kapa Haka.
This year (2016) the Western Cluster committee introduced a new item called Māori Games which shall replace the traditional Hard Court day. This is an exciting opportunity and it demonstrates the awesome fortuitous nature of Kura collaborating together.
Parents are invited to peruse the gallery of images and calendar of events. Raglan Area School warmly welcomes parents to join us at any of these events.
Nau mai, kake mai.
