Brooklyn School Culture
We are proud to be a part of Brooklyn School. We care for ourselves, one another, our whanau and our community.
We established our school houses in 2012 We love interacting with students from all over the school and competing to win the House Cup which is presented to the winning house at the end of the each year.
Our School Houses are:
What House do you support!?
Kapa Haka is offered on Thursday afternoons from 12:00-12:30pm as a cultural activity for students at Brooklyn School.
Matua Breach leads the group with his wealth of knowledge and skills.
The Kapa Haka group participate in the Annual Wellington Kapa Haka Festival.
A highlight of the school year is our chance to celebrate Matariki with a fantastic evening of events! We are grateful for the many parents and staff who make this event possible.
We like to integrate this celebration into our learning in the classroom.
END OF YEAR XMAS CAROLS
Another highlight to finish off the school year is the carols evening. Families from our school community gather together for this social event. Bring a picnic blanket, some dinner and have a sing along!
Each term we hold a school powhiri to welcome new students and their families to Brooklyn School.
Our whānau hui's are held on a Wednesday, once a term. Thank you to Matua Breach for helping to run this event.
ARTSPLASH & DANCESPLASH
Every year Brooklyn School participates in the Artsplash and Dancesplash events held at the Michael Fowler Events Centre in Term Three. The students share their singing and dancing, working with a number of other schools and performing during the evening to their parents and friends.
If you would like your child to 'take up the challenge' contact Ms Harris in Moa for more details.
