Arts Evening

by Joanne Clark

On June 24, whānau enjoyed a lively, colourful performance evening when NCEA students and the Shakespeare Festival teams shared their achievement creating rich theatre. There was a wonderful exhibition of whanaungatanga, the relationships of shared experience and working together, in the kindness and respect shown by students backstage, onstage, and in the audience, as they coped with technical issues, illness, and nervousness. Admirable resilience was shown as “the show must go on”.

Stars Mentor

by Lucretia Treadgold
