Creative Arts

SewingAll students participate in the creative arts. They are part of the National Curriculum, and are part of the daily timetable. Teaching the arts is very much part of the school’s culture and this is sometimes integrated with other curriculum areas.

We are fortunate to have a music specialist who is responsible for all class music and teaches each class weekly.

A highlight is a school musical production that is performed biennially by all year 5 and 6 students. As well, arts festivals and junior Christmas concerts are performed regularly.

In addition, a range of extra-curricular activities are offered to students and we strongly encourage all year 5 and 6 students particularly to be involved with at least one of these.

Notification about when to register for any one activity will be in the fortnightly newsletter that is sent to all parents and/or daily notices. If you miss deadlines please make contact as often, although not always, we are able to accommodate your child.

Students are expected to be committed and attend regularly because we see this as an important part of learning. Sometimes children need encouragement for this to happen so we appreciate parent support.

Opportunities to perform to an audience are considered an important part of being a group member.

Teacher contacts are as follows: tony@hauraki.school.nz   rebekah@hauraki.school.nz   wendy@hauraki.school.nz   principal@hauraki.school.nz

Those wanting to learn musical instruments at Hauraki outside of school hours should make contact with MEC www.musiceducation.co.nz, email lessons@musiceducation.co.nz or free phone 0800 89 39 39. Other opportunities for music, dance, drama or art tuition may appear in the fortnightly newsletters from time to time.
