KC Clubs

Wargames Club

Wargames Club: this thriving group of 50+ students meets each week to play a range of games, including D&D, Magic the Gathering, Warhammer, 40k, boardgames etc. Roleplaying happens on a Wed after school in A6, organising meetings on Thursday lunchtime in E4 and the main meeting Friday afterschool in the library (and surrounding rooms) when all games are played. Competitions for painting, Magic or computers games happen throughout the year.

QSA

QSA is the Queer Straight Alliance, we meet Wednesday intervals (room tbc). We discuss how to make the school and wider community a safer and more welcoming place for all students. We have been a major factor in gender neutral uniform and bathroom decisions, organise Pink Shirt Day and Day of Silence, and last year helped organise the first Pride Parade to be held in a NZ secondary school. It doesn't matter how you identify, we welcome everyone.

Junior Photography Club

Open to year 9-11 students who want to go and shoot something without killing it. The particular focus is to get good at composing pictures that aren’t selfies taken on a phone in the bathroom. We look at a range of techniques and settings and even have fun!

Mountain Bike Club

Regular rides and occasional competitions exploring the mountain bike parks and trails of the Wellington region and beyond.

The focus of the club is on having fun rather than achieving sporting excellence.

The Club has a bike trailer that can carry 10 bikes so occasional shuttle days even means avoiding the uphills!

Keep an eye on the notices for meetings and join up to the google classroom for all the latest KCMTB news.

We take part in regular beach clean ups, gardening in the maara kai, paper and card recycling at school, and have been actively involved in campaigns to do with climate change, plastics and zero waste alternatives, water pollution, palm oil, and land restoration through local tree planting. We meet every Tuesday at lunchtime, in C9.
