Read around the world

 Kia ora Friends….

 We have a wonderful holiday programme with something for kids of all ages – from toddlers to teens - and their adults, these April School Holidays, and you are warmly invited.

 Please find attached the poster and timetable for the Read Around the World programme – with activities for pre- and primary schoolers - and an additional poster for a very special late night event for teenagers and adults, My Name is Not Refugee.

 My Name is Not Refugee features live storytelling exploring the refugee and migrant experience, including fresh voices from local high schools, special guests Adrienne Jansen, Carina Galegos, Moira Wairama, and Tony Hopkins, and the Afrobeats of the mighty Sam Manzanza. Come along and mingle with your neighbours, from far and near. Refreshments will be provided.

Do feel free to forward these invitations to your networks, and hang the posters in any high traffic areas you have access. If you would like a bulk set of bookmarks for your school or group, sing out and we will make them for you. 

‘Diversity is being asked to the party. Inclusiveness is being asked to dance.’ -- Verna Myers

Do you know a boy who loves to sing?

Do you know a boy who loves to sing?

 

With the beginning of a new year we are looking for prospective boys to join the Archdiocesan Boys’ Choir. There is no requirement for previous experience of singing in choirs or prior musical training. We look for boys who are  happy and friendly, can sing in tune and enjoy music. If that sounds like your son, or someone you know, then encourage them to audition.

 

Over their time in the choir, boys will learn sound vocal technique, music theory, life-skills, teamwork, as well as grow in confidence and discipline. Teachers and parents see the boys’ language skills, reading comprehension skills, maths skills and confidence improve greatly by being a part of the choir. The life of chorister provides the ability to develop spiritual, as well as musical, intellectual and personal gifts. 

 

We are holding auditions for 2018 on Thursday 1 February 4:00pm-5:30pm at the Cathedral on Hill Street, Thorndon, Wellington. If you can’t make this time, please get in touch below to arrange another time that suits.

 

For more information and to register your interest please contact Michael Fletcher, Director of Music, Metropolitan Cathedral or email m.fletcher@wn.catholic. org.nz or phone 04 496 1780
