Scholarship in 2011

In the Arts Department, we have had success in the past in Scholarship assessments.  This year we were thrilled to have both Barney and Christina attempt the Scholarship Drama examination performance.  And there is good news for next year as well.

In 2011, Dance and Samoan join the ranks of subjects with Scholarship examinations.

When paying your exam fees, you get 3 Scholarship exams in the package for free.  I recommend that everyone take at least 1 Scholarship class, because it is a good experience, improves your skills, and costs you nothing.  Scholarship awards are given out in amounts from $500 to $6,000.

The subjects offered in the Arts at Kuranui where you can attempt Scholarship in 2011 are:
  • Art History
  • Dance
  • Drama
  • French
  • Music 
  • Te Reo Maori
  • Visual Arts – Design
  • Visual Arts – Painting
  • Visual Arts – Printmaking
  • Visual Arts – Photography
  • Visual Arts – Sculpture
The best part about Arts Scholarship examinations is that the exams are prepared.  In Dance and Drama, there will be a performance of your choice.  The Visual Arts include portfolios prepared as part of a course of study over the year.

Whatever you chose, think seriously about taking a Scholarship subject or two.... the advantages far outweigh the difficulties.
