Our school wide vision for The Arts at Hilltop School is that all students will be exposed to a wide range of opportunities to express their creativity and extend their skills in both visual arts and performing arts. As well as regular in-class Arts based learning, there are many opportunities offered through our Electives programme, and also as extra-mural options. We employ specialist staff (Music, Visual Art, Dance and Drama) to enhance the opportunities offered in our Arts programmes. Every second year children are able to be involved in a school production. We have a school band, choir, rock bands and also an active kapahaka roopu. Groups do extremely well in competitions such as Dance NZ Made, Band Quest and JRock. We enjoy singing and dancing together at school assemblies and love it when whanau join in the fun!
