Opportuntiies for singing, dance and drama are included in classroom programmes. We run an Arts Rotation programme across the school for all children once a week. The options change regularly.
We have a Senior Kapa Haka Group (Years 3-6) that meet each Friday at 11am. The Kapa Haka group are taught by out tutor Whaea Carol and the children learn a range of waiata, poi, haka and rākau. The children commit to the group for the year and they participate in local Cultural Festivals. The group are also the leaders in our school for pōwhiri (formal welcomes). Later in the year, we will be starting up a Junior Kapa Haka for students in the Junior Syndicate.
A piano tutor comes into school once a week to work with children, in groups or for private lessons. This programme is funded by parents who opt into it for their child. Enrolments are made directly with our piano tutor (Sarah) - please phone the office for her details if you are interested in this option for your child.
