Welcome to Northcote College
Northcote College has a proud tradition. It is the secondary school on the North Shore with the longest history. The School was founded in 1877. 2016 is the 140th year in the history of Northcote College.
People and positive relationships are at the heart of Northcote College. We recognise that each student is important and unique. We work hard to create an environment where students are happy, thrive academically, enjoy the co-curricular opportunities available and share positive values.
At the beginning of this year Sarah Morton (13PLU) came to Auckland and to Northcote College from Hastings Girls High School with the FIFA World Cup in her sights.
Synchronised swimming is an art form and Year 11 student Emily Riddell and Year 9 student Lily Milne certainly deserve congratulations on their success in the National Schools Competition.
Tristan Hutchinson recently took part in the national Spanish Speech Competition and returned victorious having won the scholarship level of the competition.
Year 10 Spanish have been studying the culture of Argentina over the past few weeks and once again that involved food!. There was an opportunity to tango thrown in.
Well done and thank you to all involved who made this day a success and and an enjoyable event for all of our students, staff and our wonderful guests from Thames High School. Read on for results. . .
