Arts at Dio


The arts an integral part of school life - whether it is performing or producing art for public performances or exhibitions, or simply for personal fulfilment and enjoyment, we believe that creativity is a vital part of education. 

Visits to art exhibitions, galleries and theatre performances - as well as the hosting of performance groups in the school - ensure that students have wide exposure to the arts. On-stage or backstage, there is an arts and culture experience for everyone.

Students can express themselves in music and drama – from Shakespearian productions to Barbershop and rock bands.

Kapa Haka is an essential part of the school culture and arts programme, and Waikato Diocesan is committed to mutual enrichment and tangata whenua (people of the land), offering cultural assistance and opportunities for our Maori students.

School productions are a highlight of the arts calendar and music, speech and drama lessons are available to all students.

Involvement in the creative and expressive arts, both in the classroom and through the wealth of extracurricular opportunities we provide, helps to boost students’ confidence and self-esteem, and is a key element of the special Dio spirit.
