Performing Arts


 

Devon Meadows Primary School has become known within the region as a school, which strongly promotes Performing Arts. A tour of our Performing Arts room reveals a large collection of electric guitars, drums, electric keyboards and amplifiers! The school has a wide variety of tuned and untuned percussion instruments, a class set of ukuleles and a class set of acoustic guitars.

 

Classroom Lessons in Performing Arts ~ MUSIC, DANCE & DRAMA

Involve lots of fun & hands-on activities

All classes Yrs. P - 6 have a 1 hour lesson each week.

The senior school students have also used iPads to record their project work. Working in groups they choose from a list of project choices. The students use what we call our “Prac/Jam” books, in which we have a collection of songs. Our jamming is a lot of fun, involving singing, dancing and playing instruments!

 

Major Performances Throughout The Year

WAKAKIRRI

This is competition between many schools in the state. Each school has 7 minutes to present a story with dancing and acting. No dialogue is allowed!!

This performance is open for students in Yrs 3 to 6.

 

“CHRISTMAS ON THE OVAL”       (Next performance is scheduled for 2021)

This is a happy family occasion celebrated every second year, when students perform Christmas carols and songs on the oval. We usually combine this event with a sausage sizzle and is a great way to celebrate the end of another busy year at Devon Meadows.
