Rehearsals are held on Monday afternoons from 2:20-3:00pm. Check out the amazing video on this website (under pictures). See Mr Solia and Matua Tala for more information. Resources for students can be found here.
Rehearsals are held Wednesday / Thursday during lunchtimes from Term 2 and culminates in an amazing performance with other schools in Term 4. Please contact Mr Carson for more information.
We are looking forward to this starting on Wednesdays after school in Term 3 with students working with mentors from local catholic secondary schools after school for academic support and leadership mentoring.
Every year, students in Year 7 & 8 can apply to represent the school at the Servant Leaders in Catholic Schools. This is an opportunity to hear various ideas of how to facilitate and run liturgies, masses and other religious events. This is a very important role for our school and requires students to lead various religious celebrations at Holy Cross School. Please contact Mr Carson for more information.
We are currently able to offer students in Year 7/8 free music lessons in drums, bass guitar, guitar and piano with students learning in small ensemble groups. We are delighted that the Arohanui Trust will be giving students in Year 1-6 taster lessons in violin in Term 3 so students can make an informed choice in Term 4 in they wish to continue. Please contact Mr Carson for more information.
