Codes of Conduct
During the course of the year there are a number of occasions where the school recognises the sporting achievements of its students. The Sports and PE departments generally hear of such successes but there are some girls who reach representative status outside of the school’s domain, particularly in minor codes, which we don’t know about. It would be great if you let us know about significant achievements.
Student Sports Council
The emphasis for this year’s sports council will be to continue to develop leadership and responsibility for sports at Carmel. The sports council plays an integral part in linking students to sport and encouraging girls to participate in sport. All students in Y10-13 have the opportunity to be on the Sports Council each year. Signups and interviews occur in Term 4 of the previous year and again in late Term 2 of each year depending on the numbers required for positions.
This involves running Friday lunchtime activities for your portfolio sports, taking photos of coaches/games, organising competitions, coaching a team if needed, helping with the Sports Awards and assisting in major sporting events at Carmel College e.g: Swimming Sports and Athletics Days.
Students involved are expected to do the following :
- Liaise with each sport and see how they can assist with the delivery of the sport.
- Run a have a go day for each of the sports within their portfolio at least
- Understand the rules for each sport to run effective have a go days.
- Organise coaches or other students to assist with the have a go day as required.
- Complete sport plan template and share with sport council
- Market your initiative and attract students to your session.
- Report back to council on initiative and recommendations for the next session
Each year Carmel sends a group of students to compete in the AIMS Games at Mount Maunganui. In 2019 Netball, Basketball, Football, Waterpolo and Hockey and a number of individuals attended this week long event. The dates for this year are Sunday 5 September to Friday 10 September. For any individuals who are wishing to attend this event please get in contact with the Sports Department, parent help is crucial for this to go ahead.
Coaches and Managers
We are always in need of coaches and managers. Coaching support is provided before and during the season should you wish it. Teams are not possible if we do not have adult help. Please contact us if you can help in any way.
School events and school competitions are to be organised 2 months prior if applicable. 3-4 months for school National competitions. We need ample time to organise as letters need to be sent to the Carmel College Board by the Sports Department. RAMS and EOTC (safety forms) are required by Senior Management 4 weeks before hand.
There are a number of sports we do not offer at school but we are more than happy to help students enter into various competitions, as a representative of Carmel. Any out of school events, where the student is not representing Carmel, i.e., club competitions or Nationals, need to be organised by parents and the school must be notified well in advance. This is ‘self-interest’ leave.
