We are really celebrating the Arts at Papakowhai School this term. We are participating in the Artsplash festival and we have our own home grown Art Exhibition at the end of term.
On Wednesday next week we have our drama group performing at the State Opera House. They are doing a parody of High School Musical and it looks really cool.
The following week our choir and wearable arts group will be presenting at the Michael Fowler Centre. This promises to be a wonderful evening. I have had a sneak peek at some of the costumes and they really do look WOW!
The next night we have our dance group performing at the Michael Fowler Centre. This dance has been choreographed and organised by some of our senior students.
We also have a selection of our visual art being exhibited in the Renouf Foyer of the Michael Fowler Centre from September 9 -13. I am very proud of all of the performance groups and wish them well for their participation in the Artsplash festival.
If you are not able to attend the festival you won’t miss out because our own art exhibition is running in our school hall from September 24- 25. Our performance groups will also be presenting some of their work at the exhibition.
So that we can keep the cost of entry to a gold coin donation for our art exhibition, I am looking for a sponsor or sponsors for the event. At the exhibition we will have a colour A5 programme and we are looking to cover the back of it with sponsors’ messages or advertisements. We want to divide the A5 page into 8 sections and sell them for $100 each. If you don’t want to be named you are welcome to make an anonymous donation. The $800 raised will cover the cost of hiring screens (which we are getting from 3 different sources) for the event. If you would like to purchase one or more of these sections please contact me.
Thank you for your on-going support for the school and your children’s learning. It has been great to see over 90% of parents attending interviews.
