"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.

There are numerous opportunities within Performing Arts, which are based outside the classroom such as Stage Challenge, Theatre Sports, One Act Plays and many more. To download a summary of the Performing Arts opportunities available, please click on the booklet below.
