Performing Arts Showcase
Every year Rāroa produces a ‘Showcase’ that brings together the many opportunities on offer at Rāroa in an event that features the talents of students. It involves dance, drama and music: costuming, set design, choreography, lighting and film. All of the above components are put together by a talented team of staff and students.
Rock / Stage band / Orchestra
Every year Rāroa forms a Rock or Stage band/ ensemble and School Orchestra. These groups perform at assemblies, school events, and community events receiving great student support.
Performing Arts Enrichment
Weekly enrichment classes cater for all areas of Performing Arts. Classes, (depending on odd or even years), can include options such as production, creative dance, drama, rock band, music academy, prop design, and choir.
Rāroa’s Kapa Haka group Te Rangatahi is offered to students in addition to our weekly programme.
An annual Talent Quest is held in the latter part of the year and is another opportunity for students to perform.
The Waimea Exchange is a performing arts exchange with Waimea Intermediate in Nelson. Schools travel to perform on alternate years. Students are billeted throughout the exchange.
