Up Coming Sports Information & Achievements

It has been a very busy start to the year with summer sports in full swing. And we find ourselves extremely busy with winter sports preparation. We are well underway with registrations and trials so it is important for the students to keep informed through the College notices, College facebook page and newsletters.

We would not be able to carry out our sports teams without the outstanding support of parents and the wider community. If you are interested in being involved with Roncalli Sport we would love to hear from you, please contact the Sports Office on 6886003 extension 808 or email j.zandbergen@roncalli.school.nz
