Sport is an extracurricular activity and not funded by the Ministry of Education. Darfield High School is committed to offering all students equal opportunities to take part in physical activities and we encourage and support staff and students to participate at all levels whether it be for companionship, pleasure, satisfaction, or excellence.
The majority of sporting activities and events will incur participation costs. This is unavoidable as we are in a rural area and may not have the proper facilities to accommodate play. More often events are organised at purpose built facilities. For group events that have large participation numbers, we might look at applying to Funding Organisations to help subside costs. The school does however pay all Associations affiliation fees.
At the beginning of each year, the school sends out a Google Doc to all students and parents to let us know what sports you are interested in.
