About the Hall
The Moondance Sports Hall represents an extension to the College’s already extensive outdoor co-curricular provision, which embodies the original vision of the College’s founder, German philosopher Kurt Hahn. Its purpose is to encourage personal challenge, service to others, initiative, leadership and teamwork.
This is facilitated through a series of physical activities including lifeguarding, kayaking, surfing, mountain walking, emergency first aid and climbing.
The Sports Hall’s construction has been in part funded thanks to generous support from the Moondance Foundation, a charity supporting children, education, issues of poverty, medical research, the arts and humanitarian projects. The Hall provides students with gym and multi use facilitates for activities such as basketball, badminton, indoor hockey, handball and dance.
