In the last few months the Waikato Secondary School Sports Association adopted an inaugural Strategic Plan to support its focus on delivery of sport to students across the region. The plan with the vision of 'Lead and drive Waikato Secondary School Sport' and the underpinning values of Inclusiveness, Collaboration, Integrity, Equity and Resilience will be circulated in the New Year.
The strategy will focus on Leadership and Governance of Sport for secondary schools in our region. The WSSSA will do this by leading, promoting and empowering schools to deliver quality sporting opportunities to benefit our student’s wellbeing through the four key priority objectives. The four priority objectives will focus on our Relationships, our Communications, our Capacity and our Services.
The second major development in the Secondary School sport space has been the release of a specific website for Waikato Secondary School Sport. The website at www.wsss.org.nz will be the central portal of information for all Waikato Secondary School Sport. It is supported with social media on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/sportwaikatosecondaryschools/ and next year a Sports App will support the website for easy hand held device access to information.
The website is part of the overall strategy to build Secondary School Sport capacity across the region and continuing to have a 'smarter online' presence and capability. This initiative is aimed to improve market awareness and information on successes, news, trends and secondary schools sports event management. It will be the initial step in building a stronger secondary school 'sporting community' and create an identity and brand with greater commercial opportunities. It will be the critical guide to our Waikato Secondary Schools Sports event calendar and competition structure.
The awards were created to ensure our local people and initiatives were recognised for their work growing participation in the region...
