Taupo Primary School - Hooked on Learning


The First Tee Golf Programme

In Term 3 Rooms 14 and 15 are taking part in the First Tee Golf Programme which will involve a weekly, hour long lesson with a specialist Golf coach every Tuesday.

The First Tee is a programme which teaches life skills through the game of golf.  It strives to instill in participants The First Tee Nine Core Values – honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgement.    As a child passes through The First Tee levels of achievement, they will learn, in addition to golf skills and golf course etiquette:

  • The importance of a positive attitude

  • How to make good decisions

  • How to define and set goals

  • How to transfer the nine core values into everyday life
