This is Us

Students from St Andrew's College TV and Film Academy made this lipdub video. The idea was pitched by student head of television Blake Morgan and widely supported by students and staff at the College. Filmed in one day, with only one or two takes for each section, almost every student in the school was involved.

From The Rector


What a great start it has been to 2014 – the enthusiasm of the students returning to school, excellent turnout of parents to our five introductory parent evenings, three celebratory assemblies acknowledging student leaders of 2014 and academic successes from NCEA examinations.

Teachers, senior management and members of the Board of Governors are all very interested in the trends of our students’ academic achievement and we work hard to guide their goal-setting and encourage them to achieve personal excellence.  Ultimately that is what we want for all our students: that they achieve the results they are capable of and that this in turn inspires them to put in the necessary effort for further success.

Chapel Update

Chapel Bridge SM

The College is ready to embark on rebuilding its Chapel which was badly damaged in the 2011 earthquakes. The Chapel is a significant facility that services the large St Andrew’s community which has a strong emotional connection to the present building. After a robust consultation process the decision has been made to deconstruct the existing Chapel and build a larger Chapel able to meet the College’s future needs.

Regulus Magazine
