He Tohunga o Hikuai/ The wizard of Oz Hikuai Version

Every three years we put on a whole school production. Our last production was called Te Tohunga O Hikuai  in 2018 and was based around the story of the wizard of Oz but with a base around local Hikuai specific characters.   The production was  a huge success we had the tree people, the pesky possums, the Hikuai rain man and the dozy kiwi, to name a few. Parents nad the community came along to the Hikuai Hall for a fantastic night of music and laughter.  

The entire production was written and produced by the students, an amazing display of student agency for all involved.  we had a school band that performed and sang.  Included in  the pics are also some photos from the 2015 production Our prior production was called "Puakau o te Iwi" or "Ancient Stories of the  People".
