LI: to sing as a group.
LI: to perform a song in front of an audience.
That is the idea that the Wairakei Primary School choir has brought to life over the past two terms.
The choir (years 4-6) practised every Wednesday to perform at the Celebration of Learning at the end of term 2.
Wairakei Primary School 2021 National Anthem video
Each year, students from Wairakei Primary School feature in a personalised national anthem video. This video is frequently played at the beginning of our school assemblies and showcases the many learning opportunities that our students have taken part in over the last year. It demonstrates key competencies and POWER in action. This video celebrates the many achievements of our students.
