Event Centre fundraising launched!

It’s a very exciting time for our school, as our new Event Centre starts to take shape. After lockdown delays, the start of the foundation was finally poured in June (pictured right), and our prefabricated panels are ready to be installed (below). This should take place around mid July, after the ground slab pour is completed in early July.

The purpose-build Centre is due for completion in May next year and will provide a fantastic venue for assemblies, events and ceremonies.


With seating for 1,350 people, it will feature a large stage and flexible spaces including a senior student study space, teaching areas, percussion room and large foyer.

The cost of this project is $10 million and we are currently seeking community support to raise the final $2 million. It’s a big number – but we have several exciting opportunities to help us reach our goal.

Stay dry, look cool and support our Event Centre!

Here’s your chance to keep dry during winter sports this year AND support our Event Centre by purchasing one of our amazing Blunt umbrellas. Blunt was designed in Windy Wellington and these sturdy but stylish umbrellas NEVER blow inside out. As the Wall Street Journal said “Structurally the Blunt falls somewhere between suspension bridge and NASA space probe”. Tested to extremes, these amazing umbrellas are worth every cent. Anyone who’s owned a Blunt knows what we are talking about.

Find out for yourself!  Available in two sizes – Classic and XL (golf umbrella size) our black umbrellas have subtle branding and are bound to be the envy of other parents standing on the sideline.

Prices are $115 (including GST) for the Classic and $135 (including GST) for the XL, plus $10 delivery per order. Click HERE to order online – it’s super simple. Stock is strictly limited so be in quick to stay dry this winter.
