There are opportunities to be involved in choirs, vocal groups and bands, (depending on student numbers). Students have the opportunity to participate in national and local events such as the Wind Festival, Smokefree Rockquest, Christchurch Secondary Schools’ Orchestral Festival, the Primary Schools’ Music Festival and the Cultural Festival. We regularly have the opportunity to be involved in enrichment activities.
Being able to attend live performances is vital. We are committed to ensuring that our students have the opportunity to participate in enrichment and extension programmes in the Arts. These have included Design and Creative workshops with New Zealand Opera, performances by national and local musicians such as the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. Students are often invited to participate in composition workshops and regularly are able to meet with and learn from working musicians as part of exploring career development opportunities.
