Arts Festival

In August 2015 the school hosted it's first ever Performing and Visual Arts Festival - encompassing 16 days of lunchtime performances, workshops, and evening concerts there really was something for everyone. Opening with the NZ Youth Jazz Orchestra and culminating with two spectacular Dance Showcase evenings at the Maidment Theatre, festival highlights also included the Inaugural Rangitoto College 48-hour Script Writing Challenge, Pictures at an Exhibition – a celebration and collaboration of student work in visual arts, music, dance and drama, and the Jazz Club – where the auditorium was transformed into an intimate and groovy venue serving fabulous gourmet food platters and barrister coffee! Year 10 Drama productions and the Performing Arts Showcase drew very appreciative audiences and we were delighted to host Murrays Bay Intermediate dancers and Northcross Intermediate actors for workshops and performances in their respective disciplines.

The next Arts Festival will likely be in 2017.
