Reporoa Primary has a swimming pool on-site which is used in term 1 and 4. During these times, each class has a specific time allocated to developing swimming skills and the learn the importance of water saftey. In term 1 we hold the Senior Swimming Sports (Years 4-6) at Reporoa College as they have a 25m pool. The juniors have an afternoon of displaying their swimming skills they have learnt during term 1 and 4.

The Mini marathon is run by Sport BOP and held in Rotorua. This year, Reporoa Primary has entered around 20 students for the first time. This is an event that is mostly completed in the students times and when the student is registered they complete a passport.

In Term 2, they have the opportunity to complete the final 2.1km of thier marathon on the actual Rotorua Marathon Corse. Registration forms are sent home in term 1 so the children have the time to complete the 40km.
