Photo: FIONA GOODALL Principal off on sporting sojourn By KRISTINA RAPLEY Sport has played a huge part in Iva Ropati's life. The Howick College principal has represented New Zealand and Samoa in rugby league and he wants to find out more about the link between sport and academic achievement. He's off to London next February to attend the 2011 Sports Colleges Con- ference. He was one of two principals in the country to be selected for the travel award by the New Zealand Secondary School Sports Council. He will visit sport specialist schools and meet with people from the UK Youth Sports Trust who have been making waves in sport and physical education. He will then collate all the infor- mation and present it to various edu- cation organisations here. Sports is a big part of my back- ground and this is an amazing oppor- tunity to hook into that area that has given me so much,'' he says. I'm certain that there is going to be some powerful learnings come out of it.''
