"Be the best you can be ..."
Our two yearly marae stays are special and help our students to feel comfortable in different cultural settings. Our kapa haka reaches large numbers each year and we always get goose bumps watching them perform!
We have regular mini productions within the school, involving individual or combined syndicates.
Jump Jam is a popular way for children to develop their dance along with increasing their fitness level. Every year we have team/s involved the regional/national Jump Jams competitions.
High schools often comment that our students are happy to get up and present work in front of others which is likely to be the result of participation in these. We have large numbers of students who succeed in music here then go on to take outside music lessons and many who are successful in music at high school and beyond.
