OUR CLUBS

At Mahurangi College, we extend and challenge our students who are eager for more learning. Through clubs, students are extended and challenged beyond the classroom. They can try something new, seek even more knowledge, apply their learning in new contexts, hone their abilities and solve problems by thinking “outside the box”.

DRAMA

Drama Club is a place where our students can enjoy learning more about drama through games, improvisation, and work on short scripts. We meet at least once a week (usually Tuesday lunchtimes) under the guidance of experienced drama teachers. In Term 1 students will be working on items for the SCGNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival. This focus will shift later in the year as students begin work on the school production.
