"It's a channel for the creation generation. It's not just TV and film,
it's dance, music, theater, drama. It's art.'   Shane Walker

The arts are powerful forms of expression that recognise, value, and contribute to the unique bicultural and multicultural character of Aotearoa New Zealand, enriching the lives of all New Zealanders. The arts have their own distinct languages that use both verbal and non-verbal conventions, mediated by selected processes and technologies. Through movement, sound, and image, the arts transform people's creative ideas into expressive works that communicate layered meanings.

The Baradene Performing Arts faculty provides stimulating opportunities for students from Year 7 to Year 13 in a range of creative and performing disciplines.  With talented and skilful teachers, students are encouraged to enjoy participating in performing arts, to gain in confidence and self-discipline and be inspired by their experiences.
