We are committed to offering a world-class education and creating well-rounded individuals who will make positive contributions to society.
We encourage our students to get involved in a wide range of sports, arts, entrepreneurship, and cultural activities during their time at school. The skills they will develop – such as persistence, commitment, and working as part of a team – will be invaluable throughout their lives.
Your child is encouraged to actively participate in the wider life of the school. ACG Parnell College offers a choice of stimulating extra-curricular activities, both competitive – sports and debating – and co-operative – music, drama and special interest clubs.
Participating in extracurricular activities provides your child and your family the opportunity to enjoy, contribute to and develop a wider sense of community at the College. Contact us if you would like to get involved or find out more about sports at ACG Parnell College.
Sport plays a big role in the life of students at ACG Parnell. We believe that physical exercise is an essential part of mental and psychological wellbeing. As such, we encourage all students to participate in a variety of the sporting codes offered to experience and develop skills and personal qualities.
We also have a leadership programme that nurtures and cultivates potential groundbreakers who can develop meaningful management skills through experience.
We provide both formal and more personal opportunities for your child to show leadership. On the personal side, your child can learn to serve and share by peer tutoring or buddy reading – helping other students improve and achieve.
More formally, your child may be appointed as a monitor or prefect, or be peer-elected as a student councillor. These are valuable opportunities for your child to make an investment in the life of the College.
From Year 7 onwards, ACG Parnell College organises school camps, carefully tailored with a distinct emphasis on leadership development. Your child will be offered a challenging and exciting learning experience at locations in the Coromandel Peninsula and the Central Plateau.
