Physical Education and Health - Akoranga Whakakori

He oranga manawa,
He pikinga waiora.

Positive feelings in your heart will raise your sense of self worth.

Physical Education and Health are seen as an important element in the overall development of Students at MRGS. Core PE is taught until year 10, allowing students to gain skills, confidence and enjoyment from movement and physical activity beyond what is commonly offered in New Zealand schools.

MRGS is lucky to have outstanding facilities for our students to enjoy. A newly completed Gymnasium along with our existing buildings, fields and swimming pool allow students to participate in a variety of activities in a comfortable environment.

The department is well served with 13 full time Teachers. The staff are well qualified and drawn together from a wide variety of backgrounds and ages. The PE Staff are passionate about helping and encouraging all of our students to become motivated and enthusiastic students of Physical Education.


Health is a compulsory subject at Year 9 and 10.  Year 9 classes attend 4 Health lessons a week for one term.  Year 10 students have 1 Health period per week with their Physical Education teacher.  Health is an NCEA option subject at Years 11-13.  There are many career possibilities associated with Health and many life skills can be gained from this subject.  More information available below.
