Hastings Girls' High School is one of Hawke's Bay's leading sporting schools, with a strong commitment to sporting excellence. While we do not insist on all students playing sport we do encourage them all to do so. We have over 13 sports ranging from Athletics to Waka Ama, with opportunities both for the committed athlete to develop their potential, and also for others to play at social or beginner level.
Engagement in sport enables students to experience the health benefits that sport offers, while building a strong team and school spirit which involves staff, students and the extended HGHS community. In addition to providing opportunities to develop personal and leadership skills, sport also fosters social interaction and a sense of fair play. The success of sport at HGHS relies heavily on volunteers both from within the school and from the community.
