The Arts Overview

Arts education can help to develop a sense of achievement and personal worth. It provides students with knowledge that the Arts meet their needs and enables them to participate effectively in the cultural and artistic life of their community. All courses of study are based on the Arts in the New Zealand Curriculum. Where students show exceptional committment they will be encouraged at Year 13 to attempt a Scholarship in their subject of choice.

The Arts Programme is a student’s focused programme, which has a flexible structure to allow for the personal and professional development of every student. The various components through the modules are designed to give students an understanding of issues that help to understand the Arts in New Zealand and Internationally in both a contemporary and historical context. The programme helps students analyze information and draw.
