The Arts

What is happening in 2018

2022 Term 4

Why is it important to learn about 'The Arts'?

It helps us to make sense of our own lives and identify with the lives of others. It is also increasingly recognized as a driver of the innovative thinking needed to solve our world's most pressing problems. Learning and practicing art, and tapping into your creativity, can make you better at whatever you do.

Performances in Term 3

1.  Strike Percussion Group  

Strike to Schools concert was a high energy 45 minute show drawing on styles from around the world to introduce a wide range of modern percussion to our students and staff.

 2. NZ Playhouse The Emperor's New Clothes

Featured more singing and dancing than ever before, this was a hilarious and interactive adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic folktale, and had students (and teachers) laughing and thinking about the value of having the courage of one’s convictions and speaking truth to power.

 3.  Fiona & Co Musical Theatre Performance

Wow...so awesome!! Students and teachers totally enjoyed the performance from our very own awesome Mrs Fiona Greaves..and her very talented friends. The trio sang songs from popular musicals and students sang along to a variety of songs that were well known to them. Thanks again Mrs Greaves. and friends..AMAZING!!
