From automatic inclusion in our vibrant ‘house’ system, Linwood College learners are engaged in good-natured rivalry and fun in a competitive environment where friendships are forged across levels. Performing arts and sports cover a very comprehensive array of co-curricular activities on hand at Linwood College. There is something for everyone – from chess to theatre sports, from kapa haka to the school production, from netball to rugby.
Learning outside the classroom
Linwood College excels in recreational and competitive sport ranging from traditional school sports to more recent offerings such as Ki o Rahi. We recognise that sport encourages life-learning skills requiring learners to set goals, work as part of a team, and develop leadership. Time management, commitment, persistence and resilience are required – all critical coping skills.
Visual and Performing Arts

The Visual and Performing Arts at Linwood College are an integral part of school life and the College has a proud tradition of strength in these areas. This tradition continues today with innovative design and performance. Through the Visual and Performing Arts, learners experience essential skills for the modern world by developing their creativity, discipline, social awareness and confidence.
