The Importance of Extra-Curricular Activity
- At least one major sporting, cultural or service activity
- College activities, before participating in outside groups or clubs
- Auckland Secondary School or inter-house competitions
We consider that taking part in extra-curricular activities encourages:
- Loyalty and commitment
- Self confidence and comradeship
- Building of self esteem
- Recognition for excellence
We offer a wide range of sporting and cultural activities and many of our teams and individual students:
- Perform at a high level in regional and national championships
- Are selected to represent New Zealand
We regard this as being an integral part of a young person's personal development and a wide range of activities are offered.
- Art Exhibitions, Wearable Arts
- Dance Festival
- Debating, Speech Competitions
- Drama Productions, Stage Challenge, Theatresports
- Interact Club
- Intercultural Club
