St Martins School offers an exciting variety of musical and performance opportunities, which support our performing arts curriculum programme. Our performance groups will perform at a variety of opportunities throughout the year. If you are interested in finding out more information about our Performance Group opportunities please feel free to contact Amy Kenel
Some of the performance opportunities include:
We are proud to have two Kapa Haka Groups: junior (years 0-4) and senior (years 5-8). Students are given an opportunity to express Māori heritage and culture, learning traditional and contemporary waiata and haka. Our students are led by Tania Nathan and Willie Wipirata and Alice Barakat is the Teacher in Charge of Kapahaka.
Susan McKeich leads our wonderful orchestra, which brings together children from Year 5 upwards to experience the challenge and fun of working together to make music and entertain.As this is an extra curricular activity there is a charge.
This is where music begins. Susan McKeich leads two recorder ensembles, introducing children at a young age to this versatile instrument, teaching the basics of reading music, playing together in performance and building foundations for learning other instruments.

Extension Performance Arts Company (EPAC)
EPAC is a chance for our Yr 7-8 students who particularly enjoy performing arts to extend their skills in the areas of dance, music and drama. We have two showcases a year which parents will be invited to and are actively seeking other opportunities to perform.
