Physical Education is an important part of our school programme and

an opportunity for students to learn new skills in a fun and supportive environment.

All students are encouraged to participate fully in fitness, games and sports.

Russley athletes also feature strongly in basketball, cricket, orienteering, triathlon, duathlon and has representatives competing at Canterbury champs level in athletics, cross country and swimming.

For the past couple of years Russley has also competed in the Christchurch Jump Jam Competition.

During terms 2 and 3, Year 5-8 students participate in winter sport, either in a team (netball, rugby, hockey, football or basketball) or school-based activity programme.  We join forces with the North West cluster schools - Merrin, Avonhead, Westburn and Christ the King - for an afternoon of Friday sport.

Winter sport teams also have a least one weekly practice held at school during the lunchbreak.

Teams that do well with the cluster go on to particfipate in a Zone Winter Tournament held at the end of the 10 weeks.

We rely on parent help to coach/manage teams.  If you are available for a weekly lunchtime practice and Friday afternoon game, please contact us.
