Performing Arts Department Update – Term 1 2020

Here is an update of the Performing Arts Department from Term 1.

Our Performing Arts Department enjoyed a busy Term 1, with students settling into their dance, music and drama classes and itinerant music lessons.

Here are your Itinerant Tutors for 2020:

Wellbeing and Identity with LeVa

On Thursday 12th March, our Senior Assembly was treated to a presentation by the Atu Mai team from LeVa. Marina Alefosio, a talented spoken word poet opened up the presentation with a powerful piece that touched on the topics of culture, self-worth and identity. This was followed by an epic dance battle which saw three students walk away with a special prize pack.
Our Performing Arts students will be treated to two more workshops in the coming months – specifically designed to encourage our young creatives to embrace their roots, culture and talents, and will equip them with the tools to be effective performing artists.

Congratulations to Adyhana!

Congratulations to Adyhana Urika Filifilia who has been cast as the female lead in a new theatrical adaptation of “Aladdin”. This season was due to run through the Term 1 school holidays at the Mangere Arts Centre but has currently been put on hold.
