ART

James Hargest College students achieve very well in regional and national art competitions. Students are encouraged to enter a variety of painting and photographic competitions. This is one of the ways that we engage gifted students and enable them to succeed at a high level outside of the school environment.

James Hargest students achieve highly across all levels of NCEA qualifications. Programmes allow students to select their own subject matter and become independent learners. Success is demonstrated in Scholarship results and selection of art work as National benchmarks.
