Each week we hold a school assembly at the Johnsonville Community Centre and our school newsletter
informs parents of which class is organising the assembly for the week. These assemblies provide students
with a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate their skills in the varied aspects of the Performing Arts, in a
relaxed and friendly school environment. Parents are always very welcome to attend these assemblies.
Orchestra & Choir
Fiona Kearns & Lynne Candiliotis are thrilled to have the opportunity to coach a school orchestra each year. The talented group comprising violins, guitars, ukulele, flute, drum, & cajon (a Spanish drum), accompanies choir to lead the singing at our school Masses. This group will continue to learn new songs throughout the year.
In 2015 three senior violinists took an active part leading the music for our ANZAC Remembrance Day Ceremony.
Amanda Prowse and Victoria McHalick will teach the choir the songs for the 2016 Artsplash Festival at the Michael Fowler Centre on 31 August at 5.15pm.
These singers will dedicate many hours each week practising and memorising a variety of 12 songs selected by the organisers of the Festival. They will wear our special ‘St Brigid’s red Artsplash tee-shirts’ and perform for their parents, whanau, & friends as part of a massed choir of singers from other schools.
This festival is a young people’s Arts Festival run by the Wellington City Council, that brings together primary and intermediate schools throughout Wellington to celebrate dance, music, drama, visual art and wearable art.
Wednesday 8.30am in the Library – for Term 1
Our Year 6-8 choir has started with a talented group of students keen to share their love of music and stretch their voices by experimenting with harmonies, rounds and multi-part songs. The students have selected a recent hit to cover as well as throwing their energies into a range of traditional favourites.
Every year we finish Term 3 with this wonderful event, coordinated by the Student Leadership Team, that showcases an amazing variety of talent in the Arts from students throughout Teams Tahi, Rua and Toru.
Our students enter the talent quest by sharing an item, such as: a song, a group dance, playing a musical instrument. The student leaders and teachers select performances for the finals on the last day of the term
