Recommended Prior Learning

The students should have had some experience playing touch Rugby. Students must also come to the course with an appropriate standard of fitness, so that, they can safely and effectively participate in the game

This course involves participating in a Papakura High school touch Rugby team that will play in local modules and College Sports competitions. The ultimate aim will be to attend Touch Rugby nationals played at the end of the school year. Students who select this option MUST make themselves available to play in these competitions and demonstrate a commitment to the team by learning the kawa and Tikanga of playing a team sport.

Assessment will be multi-level and occur at the appropriate level for the student. At Levels 1, 2 and 3, there will be a minimum of 8 achievement standard credits available each semester. Please note that the credits offered will be similar to senior Physical Education courses. Therefore, the student selecting this course will not be able to take Senior Physical Education also. 

The teams that play in the competition will be based on the makeup of the students who have entered. ideally, we will have gender-based and mixed teams participating.

Semester 1 will focus on structure moves, policy and practice.
