The school provides a range of sporting opportunities. We have a gymnasium and outdoor court facilities. Our students have achieved excellent results over the years in many sporting codes. Sport is valued in the school and promoted strongly because of the important qualities of loyalty, self-discipline, teamwork, health and fitness, and leadership it engenders. While winning is certainly the aim, we try to emphasise participation, sound sportsmanship, and playing to the best of your ability.
Team sports and the development of co-operative effort are encouraged but we nevertheless take pride in the many achievements of students who play sport as West Coast representatives. Students are encouraged to play for school teams and are able to participate in athletics, basketball, cricket, netball, rugby, rugby league, soccer, volleyball, hockey, softball, and swimming. Some students play several codes for local teams. Where our numbers are small, students are provided with sporting opportunities by being part of our combined Greymouth High Schools team.
Winter and summer inter-school fixtures are held most years with other schools (e.g. Catholic Cathedral College, Mercy Cup, etc). We also take part in West Coast and Canterbury competitions. Some of our school teams, in recent times, have involved themselves in international sports competitions by traveling overseas to participate.
