Extracurricular Activities

Your son is encouraged to make the most of the multitude of extracurricular activities available through Otago Boys’ High School. Additional activities are also available through the hostel.


Most boys take part in a school sport, usually having 1-2 after school practices per week and games on Saturdays. Housemasters assist with vans rides to help get boys to and from practices and games. A room with a piano is available for music practice.

Pool shouts/ games

Housemasters can organise to take boys to Moana pool for a swim/waterslide, or run games of touch, basketball, football at the school fields or gym, or table tennis or pool tournaments in the games room.

Movie outings

Held on some Friday and Saturday nights, boys can get a discounted rate, and are transported to and from the movie theatre.

Stadium trips

We arrange a bus to take boys to and from the stadium when a game of interest is on. Housemasters will supervise this outing.

Projector room

Movies or sports games are shown in the projector room with tiered seating to provide a “live” experience.
