School Activities

Extra-curricular Activities

There is a wide range of lunchtime and after-school College clubs and groups for students to join. We recommend that everyone gets involved in at least one group.


Summer sports include tennis, athletics, cricket, cross country running, softball, AM Mayhem (a running and fitness group) and dragon-boat racing (Year 13 in Term 1).

Winter sports include football, rugby, netball, hockey, badminton and basketball.


Dawn Chorus is the all-comers choir. There is no audition for this choir, which meets before school on Fridays at 8am.

Dawn Chorus

You can also audition for Twilight Tones and Blue Notes, or the barbershop groups Maiden Tawa (girls) and Acafellas (boys). 

Instrumental groups include the string orchestra, guitar groups, and concert band. There is also group training in strings, woodwind, brass, percussion and voice. 

Concert Band

Each June the college's choral groups are featured at a concert entitled June Tunes and, two to three weeks later, a Beat the Winter Blues concert features the school's instrumental groups. 

An early November concert, November Notes, features a selection of the musical groups within the school.
