We offer a variety of exciting opportunities for our students. At times these opportunities vary due to the availability of specialist teachers and demand.
Usually during Term 3 all our senior students are involved in a variety of exciting academies each Friday. These are hugely varied and may include computing, multi-media design, cooking, crafts, sports, community projects, performance and Enviroschool projects.
All students learn to play the recorder.
In Term 1 each year our whole school is involved in E.O.T.C. (Education outside the classroom) Week. The year 5 and 6 students go on camp for the week. Other students participate in a variety of activities and challenges in the local community. Often a year 4 group will visit the Bluff Marae.
Currently we have students involved in choir, kapa haka, guitar, S.M.M.C. (Saturday morning music classes), keyboard, Student Council, Enviroschools and other leadership roles within the school.
Year 5 and 6 students contribute to the running of the school in a variety of ways: running our lunchtime sports gear shed, road patrol, peer mediators, lunch heat ups, school banking, lunch orders, librarians, house leadership and lunchtime activities.
Throughout the year our students particpate in a huge array of sporting events including athletics, cross country, top bike, tee-ball, touch rugby, swimming, triathlon, rippa rugby, ski-ing and ice skating.
Academic events on our calendar include I.C.A.S. (International Competitions and Assessments for Schools) examinations, ODT Spelling Quiz, ODT Social Studies Quiz, and Otago University Mathematics Problem Solving Challenge.
Community Crusaders is an exciting initiative which allows students the opportunity to go out into our local community and make a contribution to the lives of others. This is a voluntary programme run during lunchtime. It is always very popular with students.
