cultural opportunities

At Knighton Normal School we offer many cultural opportunities for our children to explore within the Arts.  Music, drama, visual art and dance is incorporated into classroom programmes to link to learning programmes within each learning space. 

We have many teachers with interests and passions for the arts.  This means we offer many other opportunities outside of classroom programmes.  The extra opt-in experiences we have running in our lunch breaks for students include:

  • Drama Club (for middle and senior school students)

  • Knighton Chorus - choir

  • Music lessons through Music House

  • Hip hop 

  • Kapa Haka

  • Pasifika Group

  • Art and drawing time and space

We run an odd and even year arts event schedule incorporating school-wide events and giving children the chance to share their learning and progress in the Arts, some of these events include:

  • Junior, Middle and Senior school productions

  • Whaanau Arts Extravaganza - sharing all our arts with our community

  • Knighton’s Got Talent

  • The Kids Sing event for our choir

  • Cultural Celebration performances

  • Wearable Arts

  • Music House music concerts

  • Lunchtime/assembly drama performances

We love the arts, and we love seeing our tamariki blossom, shine and take flight.  For some this is their strength, and we hope to help them discover and grow it.
