Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
What a busy couple of weeks the last two weeks have been, with a major focus being of the Arts. Last week we saw our Kapahaka group put on an excellent performance that had them acknowledged by the audience who replied to their Haka.
This week the focus has shifted to our musical, ‘The Amazing Race". A huge thank you to all of the pupils and teachers who have worked so very hard on it. A special thank you to Mr and Mrs Baines for the above and beyond work that they have put in.
The arts is often an overlooked part of our curriculum and yet it is so important. The major athletes of
ancient Greece are long forgotten but their artwork lives on. Few people remember the sportsmen of the Renaissance but the Artists live on.
A balanced society caters for all aspects of the human being, and we support and I applaud all of those who make lasting contributions to our society.
Singing, drama and dance will all be highlighted in our performance. I am sure that you will enjoy it.
Have a great holiday
