Fair Play for All

Our Director of Sport ensures team sports are well managed. We have a firm belief in ‘fair play for all’, and work hard to maintain these standards.

Our Gymnasium being bigger than an international netball court with tiered seating, has proven be an invaluable resource for both the school community and the wider community. The Dance & Drama Suite with a beautiful rimu floor and with connections to specialist storage areas, has added much to the diverse nature of our facilities.
