Yeah, Nah It's Not Okay Song Quest

Some of our Tarawera students performed original songs at the 'Yeah, Nah It's Not Okay' Song quest on Saturday night. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of anti violence and bullying. It was great night with lots of talent, there were groups from all over the Bay of Plenty performing.
We had a group of seniors  Bless Maxwell, Keesha King and Somer Richardson perform an original song which is part of their evidence for their 6 composition credits for in music. Hohepa Waenga received an award for the lyrics for his original song. Here are a few pictures from the evening.

Celebrating Success

At the end of Term 2 we had a very special event in the hall before it was knocked down. The event was called 'Celebrating Success' and it was a chance for our talented student to perform to the public. The event was extra special because it was the last performance on the stage and in the hall before it was knocked down. We had dance performances from the Performing Arts Academy at Level 1, 2 and 3. All of these performances were original choreography. There was also bands performing covers and a medley of student compositions. We managed to have a staff band perform as well as our talented Kapa Haka. It was a great evening. Below is a video of the medley and a few pictures thanks to Anneke Hepi.
