The Arts @ MKK

The Arts play a big role at Maraekakaho School.

Music and drama are very important.  We take great pride in the singing expertise of our kids.  Every assembly includes at least a couple of songs.

We have two excellent choirs, led by Mrs Beauchamp - FANTABULOUS - our allcomers choir, which usually involves 90%+ of the senior school and BACKCHAT - our premier choir for which the kids must audition.  Each year the choirs perform at a number of concerts and were awarded the Hawkes Bay Kids Sing trophy for the best overall choir in 2007.

As well as our choirs, MKK kids get the opportunity to strut their stuff solo during MKK IDOL.

Every second year we put on a whole school production, which is staged in Hastings in front of around 800 people.

Music tuition in piano and guitar is offered during school time.


We are very proud of the high standard of classroom art produced by our students. We have so many talented artists and our website and class blog pages are  great places to check this out.
