At the end of last term we welcomed the wonderful Lavina Williams into our Performing Arts whānau for two days thanks to the NZ Music commission.

Lavina is a singer/songwriter from Auckland. She has also performed extensively in musical theatre and was the only polynesian woman to ever play the role of ‘Rafiki’ in The Lion King. 

To say we were excited to have her at Hornby High School was an understatement. Lavina worked with our talented senior musicians on stage craft, performance skills and songwriting. 

This was an awesome opportunity to have professional mentorship and all of the students involved gained a lot from the workshops.
