Registrations are now open for the New Zealand Teachers’ Games (NZTG) which will be held in Mt Maunganui from 30th September – 2nd October 2018.
The NZTG is an opportunity for teachers and other school staff to have fun with their colleagues, to compete seriously or socially and to enjoy each other’s company on the sports field. It provides a setting away from the pressures of school for all staff to relax, to network socially and professionally and to experience all the fun that being physically active and part of a team can bring. Professional development opportunities will also be provided throughout the games.
Open to anyone on the payroll of Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary schools and with options for all levels of ability, fitness and competitiveness, the NZTG has something for everyone so why not get a big bunch of your colleagues (or the whole team!!) together and GET YOUR GAME ON!
Sport is a big part the landscape in NZ schools. It has the ability to develop school culture and pride and a key engagement vehicle for students in learning and the school and wide community. Sport can contribute to academic and social outcomes with clear links to key curriculum competencies including Relating to Others, Participating & Contributing and Managing Self.
NZTG seeks to use sport to provide schools with team building and networking opportunities, creating positive health and well-being experiences for staff and encourages teachers to be a part of providing quality school sport opportunities for their students.
