Our cultural and sporting successes are the result of a dynamic mix of talented and enthusiastic students and dedicated staff, who value and are committed to the wider life of the school.
Our students are involved in the wider community through:
- Service committee - which raises funds for organisations such as Auckland City Mission, Canteen and the Heart Foundation;
- Trees for Survival - where students plant seedlings they have raised as part of a conservation programme.
For many of our students, the ASB Polyfest, is the highlight of the first term each year.
From the beginning of February through to mid-March, during lunch times and after school, the school resounds to the beat of drums, singing, music and dancing, as our seven cultural groups, Samoan, Tongan, Cook Islands, Niuean, Indian, Iti Kahurangi and Kahurangi Ki Maungawhau Kapa Haka, spend hours rehearsing and fine tuning their performances for the festival. Each year our groups represent the school and their cultures with great dignity and pride.
Congratulations to our eight cultural groups who all performed so brilliantly at this year’s Polyfest.
Our Samoan Group was placed first overall girls’ school and our competitive Kapa Haka Group, performing in the First Division was third overall school.
Our Niuean Group was first girls' school and third overall.
Well done all.
