Sports

We place a strong emphasis on physical activity and health.  We teach the basic skills of a wide range of traditional and non- traditional sports.  We are also part of a group of schools in a sports zone.  Zone sports are held for swimming, cross country and athletics, and a winter sports tournament is held each year.  Our school holds its own swimming sports, cross country races, winter sports programme, and athletic sports, just prior to each of these.   Year 5 and 6 children take part in a Winter Sports programme in Hagley Park.  All children can participate in triathlons and a Kiwisport programme at school.
A wide variety of opportunities are provided at Linwood Avenue School. We aim to have children participating and competing at several levels. Year 5 and 6 children have the opportunity to participate in a Friday afternoon competition in the central city.

Neighbouring schools in the Linwood area also compete against each other three times per year in various sports.
