Gym 1

Whare hākinakina 1

One of our most popular hire facilities is Gym 1, a large, multi-use space with full AV capacity and Wi-Fi that can be set up for large events such as banquets, conferences, conventions and trade shows.

This generous facility with a capacity of 1000 people, can accommodate 400 people banquet style and 800 conference style.

The facilities can also be hired for recreational use by visiting sports teams staying on site.

Gym 1 was modernised in 2016, including the addition of a stylish new ‘streetscape’ area outside, which provides a seamless link to the entire Gym Complex and other areas of the College.

The Middle Eastern Dance Association of New Zealand, Discovery Foundation, Presbyterian Church General Assembly, Elmwood Sporting Club and Highland Dance Academy of New Zealand are among those to have hired Gym 1, which has also been utilised by St John for its Youth Competition Weekend. Indoor markets and even a bird show have also been held in Gym 1.
