Rugby training for U14s, U16s and 1st XV will be held at Te Wharekura O Mauao on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4.15pm. Anyone interested in playing is welcome to attend as we are still looking for more players. It’s not too late to join!
Please email our rugby TIC’s Marlize Greyling (email@example.com) and Isabel Jeftha (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any further inquiries regarding rugby.
Badminton training starts in Term 2, and will take place each Wednesday from 3.30pm to 4.30pm in the College Gymnasium. Badminton at Aquinas is offered first and foremost as a social sport with the view to include as many students as possible. Basic skills and the rules of the game are taught during games. Students who wish to play competitively are encouraged to join local clubs such as Tauranga and Mount Maunganui.

A reminder of the process for taking a child off the school grounds.
If a student is going to be away from school, or needs to leave the school grounds, a message can be left on the Absence Line 24 hours a day (07 543 2400 Extension 1). This is cleared each morning by the Attendance Officer. Please leave your child’s name, year level and a brief reason for the absence.
If your child is going to be away for 3 days or more please email or write to the Principal, Mr. Matt Dalton. This is a Ministry of Education requirement.
If a student is leaving the school during the day please provide a note which can be shown to the teacher and given to the office when the child signs out.
If the student is to leave with another parent please provide written or verbal consent.
