The Performing Arts are at the heart of life here at Dilworth, with two thirds of Junior Campus students receiving music lessons in 2011. The itinerant staff consists of many of Auckland’s leading music teachers, and their efforts culminate in the Itinerant Evening at the end of the year. We welcome your attendance and support at the House Music and Dance competitions, as well as the Founders', ANZAC Day and Carol Services, which are our cultural highlights of the year.
Junior Campus Choir
The choir performs regularly throughout the year at Chapel and with the Senior Campus choir at combined campus celebrations. The highlights of the year are the performances at the A.P.P.A. choir festival, held at the Auckland Town Hall in November, and the Carol Services at the end of the year.

Our Kapa Haka group has an outstanding reputation and is invited each year to perform at the Auckland Town Hall, as part of the A.P.P.A. choir festival, as well as giving regular performances throughout the year at school occasions.

The Pipe Band is in its infancy and we are always delighted when students elect to have bagpipes lessons, as we want to grow this group in the future.

Marimba & Ukulele
In Terms 2, 3 & 4, all students learn pieces for the ukulele and marimba during classtime and can choose to be part of the Ukulele or Marimba festivals in Term 4.
All students at the Junior Campus have the opportunity to perform under lights, in costume and makeup in the biennial school production. The boys work with the best choral trainers and choreographers in Auckland, to create performances they will never forget.
