All students at Hato Pāora are expected and encouraged to take part in the co-curricular activities available to them.
Hato Pāora College students have a long tradition of being actively involved in co-curricular activities and this fine tradition will be continued. It is our expectation that all students take part in at least two co-curricular activities during the year; amongst those offered are a range of spiritual, cultural and sporting activities.
Once a student has committed himself to a school team, or an activity, he is expected to arrive on time and take part to the best of his ability. Considerable time and effort goes into the organisation and coaching of teams, so it is unrealistic to have your son excused from his co-curricular activity unless exceptional circumstances arise. This is particularly important to remember when you wish to plan weekends for your son to take leave. As a result, leave is restricted after all sporting and other co-curricular commitments have been fulfilled.
The committee is made up of two representatives from each year group, including Head Boy and Deputy Head. This committee will meet up regularly to offer feedback and student voice about any initiatives they may have for the living or learning environments.
