Team sport is at the heart of our sporting culture. We have a proud history of participation and success in team sport and this continues to be so. While high performance is not our sole success factor, we take great pride in the many Mana College teams that compete at a premier level. It is fair to say that while we are a small school, we certainly don’t lack in pride, passion, and determination.
A significant number of alumni have continued from Mana College to become successful sportsmen and women at amateur and professional levels, including All Blacks TJ Perenara, Rodney So’oialo, and Tamati Ellison, Māori All Black, Jacob Ellison, Tall Black Jordan Ngatai, golfer Michael Campbell, Black Stick Lisa Bishop, and basketballer Leone Patterson.
