Groups & Clubs

Make the most of your time at Sacred Heart by participating in a group or club (or more than one!). It is a great way to meet fellow students and to have fun with like-minded people.

Does singing in harmony –  American style – intrigue you? You might like to join our Barbershop Chorus. We also have a strong Kapa Haka – Māori culture song/dance group. 

The Duke of Edinburgh International Award (DOE) is a programme (for Year 10 and above) of individual challenges to encourage personal development, leadership and confidence.

See our Sports pages if the mix of competition, teamwork, discipline, and physical fitness is a bit of you.

If you would like further information please email the contact person (this may be a student or a teacher). They will let you know where and when the group meet. You are sure to find something that appeals! 

Club Philippines

Kamusta! Filipino students at Sacred Heart are passionate about Filipino culture and enjoy sharing their interests in music, media, and food.



Debating involves developing logical arguments about an idea, and pitting your wits against a team with opposing views. At Sacred Heart we have both Junior and Senior teams which compete in various competitions.

Fellowship of the Geeks

Many people are passionate about something.  Fellowship of the Geeks is a safe place to let that passion run a bit wild. 

We are a highly organized group dedicated to exploring and enjoying the many facets of geek culture.

Once per week, this delightful bunch of highly excitable nerds meet up to participate in a range of activities. 

In the past we’ve decorated biscuits according to fandom themes, made VR headsets, designed badges, watched movies, created wands, shared lunch and run fan art competitions. 

There is no barrier to joining. Just come on in and pretend that you have always been here.

Wonder Girl Up Club

Wonder Girl Up Club is a community of girls who want to grow in leadership and progress in social change by advocating, organising, educating, and fundraising. The Wonder Girl Campaign – which is what the club is a part of – is founded by the United Nations and the big idea is: “A girl-centered leadership development initiative focusing on equity for girls and women in spaces where they are unheard or underrepresented”. As a club, we believe that when girls and women are in positions of influence, they work to create a more just and equitable world for everyone. 

We try to create a community that is willing to help the women in need as we understand that by helping each other we raise each other’s dignity and bring about the common good of all women. The club is about building a community within our community and taking those baby steps to make a change, empower other girls, have fun, and bring a little bit of joy to others.
