Music and Performing Arts

All students are encouraged to participate in Performing Arts activities. The school offers many opportunities in Music, Dance and Drama for students to perform both within the school and the wider community.

In Music, students are offered instrumental or voice tuition and student bands regularly perform and enter competitions. These include Jazz Band, Funk Band, Concert Band and the choir. Students are also encouraged to record their own compositions.

Dance offers students a variety of practical experiences, including YouDance Secondary Schools Youth Dance festival and the MOOVIT project in collaboration with the Vodafone Event Centre, Royal New Zealand Ballet and Richie Cesan.  Students also have opportunities to perform in school through Showcase performace evenings.

In Drama we showcase student talent through  theatre sports, senior dramatic productions and the National Shakespear festival.  There are also many opportunites to view local and international professional theatre.

Onehunga High School takes pride in performing every second year at Polyfest. As well as Kapa Haka, our students represent cultural groups from the Cook Islands, India, China, Niue, Samoa and Tonga at this large spectacular event.
