Jo's Sport Talk

Like many New Zealanders, I am thoroughly enjoying watching the Commonwealth Games at the moment. I watch the sporting abilities of these athletes in awe, and have been equally impressed with the display of humbleness and sportsmanship. As our winter sports teams continue to play into Term 3, it is a good time to remember some of our 'TPS Player Promises' when we represent TPS on the sports fields:


  • Always try our best and have a positive attitude
  • Shake hands at the end of the game, win or lose
  • Be humble in victory and gracious in defeat


Good luck to all of our TPS teams in the last part of the 2022 winter sports season. Kia kaha.
