Blessing of the new performance centre by Andrew Constable

Drama centre is opened

Following months of construction, the eagerly awaited drama and performance centre was blessed and opened in time for 2019 classes to begin.

In early February Revd Peter Rickman, Matua Tahau Thompson, Kaumatua Taki Turner, Te Whaiti Rawiri (Year 13) and other members of the school community gathered for the blessing of the school's new drama and performance centre.

The 'black box' room, named St Barnabas Annex, is a multi-purpose space for students to practice and learn the performance arts, while also a place for other school functions. 

The old drama room/assembly hall was demolished late last year to make room for the learning hub.
