Hockey is a much-enjoyed co-curricular activity for many students at our college. We typically field 3-4 teams as well as our Year 7 and 8 Wednesday afternoon teams.
The 1st XI compete in the Auckland B Grade as the young team build their experience. The 1st XI also competes at the national tier 3 tournament.
We are very fortunate to have a dedicated group of teachers who have assisted with coaching and managing and our thanks go to them.
