Waitākere College

Performing Arts

We offer Year 9 and 10 students with a passion for stage production and performance the option of joining our Performing Arts programme. The two year course offers students the opportunity to specialise in learning a variety of aspects of performance and performance technology.

The Year 9 course includes: Music, Dance, Drama, Wearable Arts, Film, Theatre-Lighting and Design, Stage Make-up, plus much more.

The Year 10 students develop these skills further with a final graduation Variety Night in December of each year.

  • Students will be expected to take part in all activities including the annual school musical
  • Students will still cover the compulsory core subjects for Year 9 and 10.

To apply for this course, fill out the application form in the Prospectus or by contacting the College office: [email protected]. Applicants will attend an interview in November of the year prior to the start of the course before the final selection is made.
