Our very successful Te Puke Rugby Academy was formed in 2016 and has now been running for six years. Like our other Academies, it has been selected on character and potential and is most definitely about ‘Excellence’. We have been the envy of many Middle Schools across New Zealand.
Our Goals and Expectations
● Demonstrate the TPI Values Be Active, Be Excellent, Be Respectful, Be Yourself
● Support Learning Centre philosophy developing student strengths
● Improve Skills, Fitness, Attitude and Knowledge
● Improve and raise achievement within the classroom
● To guide and offer future Pathways
● Make ‘Good Men and Women’
We are very proud of our achievements both on and off the field, winning multiple Tai Mitchell and NZ AIMS Games titles. We have had opportunities for our students to obtain Rugby Scholarships to Secondary and Tertiary institutions in NZ, Australia and Fiji.
We are equally proud of our Fiji Scholarship initiative, where we offer the opportunity for the two recipients to contribute and immerse themselves in NZ and Te Puke culture.
The Rugby Academy trains all year, twice a week during school curriculum time.
