Justin Ross - KSS BITZA!

I am excited for my new role as Sports Coordinator.  I am responsible for managing and co-ordinating all aspects of our school's sports program. I will work closely with the leadership team, teachers, coaches, other schools and outside agencies to ensure all our tamariki have access to a varied, quality sports programme. I am also responsible for organising and delivering school wide, skills based PE lessons on a rotational basis. I have a huge passion for sports, and being active as well. You may see me out on the netball court, or even at the town pools coaching or yelling at the kids. 2023 is going to be an exciting year, and I am looking forward to seeing our KSS kids having fun, participating and excelling on a variety of sports arena's.
