THE ARTS

"Developing Independent Life-Long Learners"


Kapahaka and Pasifika Group performs at Hutt Polyfest each year.

Arts education explores, challenges, affirms, and celebrates unique artistic expressions of self, community, and culture.

It embraces toi Māori, valuing the forms and practices of customary and contemporary Māori performing, musical, and visual arts.

The arts learning area comprises four disciplines: dance, drama, music – sound arts, and visual arts.

Within each, students develop literacies as they build on skills, knowledge, attitudes, and understandings at each of the eight levels of the curriculum.

Through arts practices and the use of traditional and new technologies, students’ artistic ideas are generated and refined through cycles of action and reflection.

In the arts, students learn to work both independently and collaboratively to construct meaning, produce works, and respond to and value others’ contributions.
