Cultural

The cultural richness at Huntley is apparent from the outset. Music, drama and the arts are celebrated by students and staff alike. A staggering statistic is the fact that over 75% of the boys and girls learn musical instruments and the school employs five music teachers.

The Chapel Choir is highly regarded for its expertise in choral singing and is often requested to perform at concerts and in churches around the region.

There are also a number of school music concerts throughout the year. Grandparents Day coincides with our major Music Concert and is a chance for the budding rock stars to strut their stuff. All year groups perform in class dramas and the Year 8 students put on a quality production.

The school has specialist art teachers who have created a rich and varied programme.

Orally the school is very strong with Year 8 debating, public speaking and the New Zealand Speech Board examinations which every child sits. For children with a talent in this area we also offer specialist teaching from an outside agency.

The abundance of talent is testament to the focus on students achieving at all levels of the spectrum. To be surrounded by such talent is rare and students and staff alike embrace and celebrate these talented individuals.
