Rutherford College has a responsibility to our students to provide the opportunity to grow by engaging in our extensive co-curricular sporting programme. We feel that being involved in Sports can lead to improved student outcomes in many areas.
At Rutherford students are given the opportunity to participate in sporting and recreational activities to learn new skills, improve skill levels and being able to enjoy the social fellowship from their chosen sport.
Participation opens doors for students to develop leadership, social and organisational skills through their involvement at whatever their level of competition. Sports can be an integral part of a student’s educational experience, and as a college we attempt to provide co-curricular sporting opportunities for all students who wish to participate.
Sportsmanship and fair play are important parts of this experience.
We expect our athletes, coaches, students, staff and parents to represent Rutherford College in a manner that is respectful of others both on and off the field of competition. It is our desire and goal that we strive to develop and practice the highest standards of courtesy, discipline, good sportsmanship, and the ability to act as good hosts and guests.
We look forward to working with you all in the sports arena in whatever area you may choose.
