The annual performing arts prize-giving is a highlight for learners involved in performing arts at Whangaparaoa College, as we celebrate the wonderful success and the highlights of the year.

Awards for recognition, commitment and excellence are presented to learners involved in many extra curricular activities, such as J Rock, Stage Challenge, Jazz Band and the School Production.  It is so wonderful to listen to the Big Band and Concert Band play, see our Kapa Haka group perform and be entertained by our talented choreographers, dancers and actors

Learners - thank you for another year of superb commitment, excellent effort and wonderful work - you do our school proud!L
