The Arts

Our aim is to present a range of artistic and cultural activities for the students. It is up to the students to make the most of these opportunities and to become involved.

Dance Festival

We hold a school dance festival every year. Children get into teams, make up and perform their dances. The top four dances from this go on to represent our school at the Hawke’s Bay Dance Festival.

Gymnastics Festivals

These are annual events that provide students with the opportunity to learn, practice and perform gymnastic routines.

Kapa Haka / Te Reo

All children receive weekly class lessons in Kapa Haka and Te Reo Maori. Students may wish to join the Kapa Haka Group. The whole school has an annual visit to Matahiwi Marae with whom we have a very close bond.

These can be arranged through the school Mrs Irwin for Y5 & 6 if the current programme allows.

Choir
