Co-curricular Philosophy

Tautake Kōtui-marau

Involvement in co-curricular activities is compulsory for students in Years 9–12, as is the College Athletics Day.

Students in Year 12 are required to take one co-curricular activity for the year, which is encouraged but optional for Year 13 students.

Students may participate in more than one sports or cultural activity per season provided the activities do not clash. Our staff tries to cater for a wide variety of interests and abilities, and encourage both elite performance and enthusiastic involvement. Experts are engaged in all activities to nurture talent and give our students an enviable head start.

While participation in the Secondary School remains a key priority – the focus on elite performance in both sports and culture strengthens. Many opportunities exist for Senior College students to test their talent, with specialist coaches and tutors available to extend their ability and experience.
