Kiwileles is a fabulous resource that includes a wide variety of songs that are easy to teach to a range of ages and abilities. It is a fabulous way to bring music into your school and connect with other schools to play in a Wellington Concert planned for later in the year.

WE CAN SING!! 2019

Tuesday 13 August 12-3pm
Sacred Heart College, 65 Laings Road Lower Hutt
Free Event
Register here

This a new event this year to acknowledge the variety of singing groups in our secondary schools. The idea is a simple rotation of performances by all singing groups (choirs, barbershops, church singing groups, a’capella groups, whatever!!) in attendance and a massed sing to conclude. A proven formula in the Wairarapa and on a small experimental scale in Lower Hutt last year.
