Silverstream Sports Academy

2017 is going to be another very exciting year for Silverstream School, particularly in our middle school with the introduction of a full time sports academy.

All children learn in different ways and have preferred learning styles. With over 60% of our entire school involved in organised sport, it made sense to cater for this preferred learning style in an innovative way.

Mr Gordon will be the teacher of the academy and is excited about getting the programme under way. The Yr 3 & 4 sports academy is different to most sports academies due to it being full time and delivering the full New Zealand curriculum.

It is not about sporting excellence. It is not only about sport. It is not about physical activity at the expense of other curriculum areas such as literacy, numeracy the arts or sciences.

The Yr 3 & 4 Sports Academy aims to integrate all the curriculum areas into a sports focus for at least 70% of its delivery. The class will include a standard mix of sporting and curriculum ability, gender and class size just like all of our other classes.

It is about catering for the children who have a passion for sport and movement. Everything from sports’ science, football, athletics, dance, gymnastics, Equestrian, swimming, BMX archery, snowboarding….you name it!


More information on our Year 3 & 4 Sports Academy is available in the attached flyer (below) or directly from the principal.
