Academies are an opportunity for senior students who excel academically, on the sports field or in cultural disciplines to extend their abilities and reach for the stars. Students that are selected for these academies work closely with expert teachers and are coached and mentored through their extension programmes. Learning takes place both within the school and outside the classroom walls with trips, performances and competitions being part of the learning experience.

ACADEMIC ACADEMY

An academic academy provides opportunities for extension and caters for students with academic gifts and talents.

Teacher in Charge: Khamal Ganley

PERFORMING ARTS ACADEMY

Our Performing Arts Academy aims to inspire and equip students in the performing arts, enabling them to strive for excellence and reach their full potential. Students in this group attend professional performances and workshops throughout the year. They also work towards showcases for the school and community. These showcases encourage students to work collaboratively and to push themselves outside their comfort zone so that they can develop their skills as dancers, musicians, actors and singers.

 

Students must be in Year 11-13 and have to audition for a place in the academy.

Teacher in Charge: Jonathan Dutton

DANCE ACADEMY

We have two auditioned dance groups here at Mahurangi College; Momentum Dance Company and Impulse Dance Group. Both of these groups have regular weekly rehearsals to push for higher technique and performance skills. They have multiple performance and competition opportunities throughout the year including the Dance Showcase and Cultural Blues Evening. Auditions are held at the start of each year. All year levels are welcome to audition. 

Teacher in Charge: Emily Woodfield
