Cultural Activities

Rutherford College offers many opportunities for students to become involved in cultural groups such as Kapa Haka, Samoan, African and Indian Dance Groups. Performances at assemblies and Polyfest are the highlight for our young people. 

Each year the school celebrates International Language week and hosts a Cultural Evening in the School Hall where visitors can sample food from around the world, participate in activities, competitions, raffles and games.
