Celebrating a term of arts

Our two-day long celebration of creativity and achievement is well underway. The school hall is full of the arts. The visual arts display is stunning and it makes the perfect setting for the 48 hour continuous school assembly that is taking place.

When the children arrived at school on day one of this term we made sure that they all understood that Term 3 was all about creativity. Since then our teachers have done a stunning job of drawing out and nurturing the artistic abilities in all of our students.

The orchestra, singing, dancing, poetry, speeches, puppet shows, instrumental acts, cultural performances, kapa haka, and joke telling are a perfect end to the term and the best possible form of assessment and celebration of this significant part of our Waimairi School curriculum.

Thanks to all of the staff and parents for your creative support this term and to Chris Jenkins for her leadership in this area.

  1. Mike and team

    I have just come from school where I was meant to be for just a few minutes this morning!

    WOW! I was blown away – initially with the static display in the hall and then by the many and varied performances. Indeed I was so blown away I have ordered my husband away from work to come and enjoy the exhibits later this morning.

    It is always fantastic to see so many children shining in all sorts of areas, not just the traditional 3 R’s and sport.

    Many thanks for what has obviously been a lot of hard work on all your staff’s part.

  2. Hi Mike

    I just wanted to drop a quick line to say that I enjoyed and appreciated the
    performances by all, but particularly the Korean students. It was nice to
    see their cultural and powerpoint display and to see their recognition as a
    major part of our school community. Please pass on our regards to the
    appropriate person.
