Designed for Modern Schooling

The School has excellent facilities and surroundings. Specialist rooms are all well equipped. A comprehensive equipment renewal policy enables students to become familiar with modern technology such as the recent $120,000 upgrade to one of our computer suites. Computer systems assist library research and book control. Computers support all learning activities.

Students at all levels have support to attend outdoor education and leadership training at the Boyle River Outdoor Education Centre and other locations.


The impressive auditorium has full drama and music facilities. The music suite includes an electronic keyboard laboratory and practice and recording studios. This complex is used for meetings, concerts and stage shows. A tohu and a mural with its pou whakamaharatanga feature in the foyer.

Sports fields include a permanent cricket wicket and nets, rugby, soccer and hockey pitches, and floodlit tennis and netball courts. A community initiative saw the building of a multi-disciplinary sports pavilion. Together these form a first class sports complex.

The library is open every school day from 8.30 in the morning. Students may come in at interval to do school work, and the library is open for general use at lunchtime from 12.30pm until 1.00pm. Students may use the library in class time with their teacher, or may choose to come in in their own time. The library also has an outdoor courtyard area for students to use in fine weather.

As a student, you will already be on the computer system, so just pick out what you would like to borrow, and take it to the issue desk. We have thousands of books and magazines for you to read. You can borrow up to FIVE books, for TWO weeks at a time. If you haven’t finished with the book by the date it is due back, bring it in to the library and it can be renewed for you. If we don’t have something you are looking for, please either ask a librarian for help, or write your suggestion down in the ‘The Bright Ideas Book’ on the issue desk.

There are eight networked computers for student use. If you would like to use one of these at lunchtime, then please see the librarian. You must use your own log-in, and abide by the rules in the cybersafety agreement you signed.

We have a large networked printer/photocopier in the library. Please ask for assistance to use this, if you would like help.


The School Canteen operates daily during term time.  It stocks a wide variety of healthy lunch options and snacks.
