Drama is offered as a full year option at Years 11, 12 and 13. At Year 10 we have a combined Performing Arts class which also incorporates musical and backstage skills. More information on drama as a subject can be found in our course information through this link Drama Curriculum.


In past years we have had student written and directed productions such as "Missing Time" and "Malfunctions of Being Human", which were wonderful.  The students involved worked hard to create interesting pieces that had an impact with everyone who saw them.

We have also had our Drama and Music departments team up with St Bernard's College (SBC) for a production of "For Today", a musical full of iconic New Zealand music.

There will be many more productions to look forward in the future.
