Kids Art Festival 2011

Visitor numbers were up and the rain stayed away, the Kids Art Festival 2011 was another full-on day of art classes, performances and fun.

Most art classes were held in the sheds this year and as such, they were a bustle of non-stop creative activity which lasted all day, an impressive feat of stamina from our brilliant teachers and their assistants.

The performance stage was a real highlight, showcasing the talented music and performance groups from local primary and intermediate schools. Other groups such as Lil Saints blew the crowd away & MC’s Kasina and Taups from New Native Dance Company did a great job of keeping the crowd entertained between acts.

Well done to the schools who participated in the ‘Proudly Kiwi’ exhibition displaying some real originality and ability with the visual arts. Schools involved this year were: Bruce McLaren Intermediate, Royal Road School, Kelston Int School, Rangeview Intermediate, Te Atatu Intermediate School, ACG Sunderland School (Primary & Intermediate), Western Heights School, Henderson Intermediate, Sunnyvale School, Peninsula Primary, Henderson Valley Primary, Henderson North Primary, Glen Eden Intermediate, Nga Kakano Christian Reo Rua Kura, Glen Eden Primary, Swanson Primary, Green Bay Primary/ Intermediate, Konini School.

Thanks to the Children’s librarians for their wonderful story time, Captain Fantastic and his mobile library & the Henna & face painters.
And a huge thank you to our excellent volunteers who came from Massey High School and Waitakere College.

We hope to see everyone again next year!
