Pakuranga College Houses

Six houses, six whanau

OUR HOUSES

Pakuranga College has six houses, each with its own Dean, Assistant Dean and House Captain. Each student’s house becomes his or her school ‘family’ for their time at the College.

Throughout the year, the College holds a number of competitive House events, such as House Arts, Athletics Day and Swimming Days. These provide great opportunities for teamwork and peer leadership, as well as some healthy inter-House rivalry.
