Sporting excellence at WHS is widely celebrated in the annual summer and winter sports assemblies and at our prestigious Sports Blues Awards night. 

Over the years we have had multiple athletes succeed on the national and international stage in a variety of sports, including at the Youth Winter Olympics and World Cup Snowsports events.

WHS is proud to boast a number of New Zealand representives and title holders, as well as regional level titles. Please click on the buttons on the right to see our student's amazing achievements.

Sporting Blues

The Blues Awards are an important event in our annual calendar to celebrate excellence, achievement, service and leadership across sports at Wakatipu High School. Receiving an award at our Blues ceremonies is the highest honour we can present students who have excelled in sports.


​​​​​​​Students can receive Achievement Blues annually for success at regional, South Island and national level. Service Blues are awarded once in a student's time at WHS and acknowledges a multi-year commitment to coaching and/or umpiring. An Outstanding Blue is awarded rarely and only to those that achieve on a national or international level.

Bruce Grant Memorial Scholarships

The Bruce Grant Trust donates funds to the youth of the Wakatipu to assist them in their sporting, cultural and artistic endeavours and has supported WHS for over 20 years. This award was created to recognise students who have overcome adversity, persevered and demonstrated the Wakatipu High School value of resilience in the journey towards pursuing their sporting and artistic dreams and potential.
