Nau mai, Haere mai, Bula, Kia orana,

On behalf of the staff and students of the Western Bay of Plenty Intermediate and Middle Schools, Tauranga City Council, Sport Bay of Plenty, Zespri International and our sponsors and delivery partners, I am extending to you a cordial invitation to attend the nineteenth Zespri AIMS Games School Sporting Championships (The Zespri AIMS Games), to be held in Tauranga during Week 8 of Term Three, 2024 (Saturday 7th September – Friday 13th September 2024).

We hope that you will feel challenged and excited by the opportunity to participate in this tournament with other students of your age in 27 different sports.

Each of the 27 sports being offered in 2024 are being hosted in superb facilities where you will have the opportunity to reach your full potential.

The Zespri AIMS Games is the penultimate sporting event for emerging adolescents in New Zealand and your participation will contribute to its success in 2024.

We are delighted to have the support of Zespri, Tauranga City Council, TECT, NZCT and Tourism Bay of Plenty, in what has become one of the largest school sporting events in New Zealand.

We hope you will take the opportunity to visit our lovely city and to enjoy the outstanding sports and social programme that will be provided for you.

Looking forward to meeting you all.
