Mr Christian Hotta
Director of Sports




Welcome to Bethlehem College Sports

My role is to oversee sport at Bethlehem College.  We view sport as part of the curriculum here and expect all students to participate in at least one sports team or activity  each year.  I welcome your contact and communication through email and please keep us up to date with students sporting achievements (and send photos too).  If you have any concerns please follow our Concern Action Plan.   Most of the sports activities we participate in are those sanctioned by the Sport Bay of Plenty and NZ Secondary Schools Sports Council.  Check out their website:  and for all information.

Please send us information feedback of the sports activities students are involved in - email and send high resolution photos as attachments.
PhotoLife come to BC to take sports photos during summer and winter seasons (see Calendar of Events for this year's dates).  Shoot key codes are sent back to you for you to view/order on line.  Please contact PhotoLife directly if you have any queries.  
111 of our Year 7 & 8 students participated in the AIMS Tournament held in Tauranga last year.  Families of year 7 and 8 students were sent an information letter on 7 March.  Children wishing to represent BC in this year's tournament need to return their forms by Mon 31 March. Click here to download.  Please refer to website for all AIMS tournament information.  AIMS 2014 will be held from Sunday 7 to Friday 12 September.
