As a school, we provide a range of extra-curricular opportunities for our students.
In addition to what Springbank offers directly, a great benefit of our surrounding area is that there are many clubs and associations offering a range of opportunities. Given our relatively small population in the wider Far North district, we are fortunate to have, proportionally, a great range of activities available.
Please explore the following document, which contains contact information for each activity/club/association. We endeavour to keep this document as up-to-date as possible. Therefore, if you are aware of any other extra-curricular opportunities available in our wider area, please contact email@example.com so that we may add them to our list.
