Performing Arts

Villa Maria College offers girls rich

opportunities in the field of performing

arts. Each year students have the

opportunity to take part in a major

production, which is produced in

conjunction with St Thomas of

Canterbury College.

In alternate years, senior girls take

a leadership role in planning,

choreographing and managing

an entry into the regional Stage

Challenge© competition. Villa is consistently one of

the top performing schools scooping five Awards for our most

recent Stage Challenge© entry.

Girls also have the option of taking Drama as an academic

subject for NCEA. Each year, as part of their assessment,

Year 13 girls produce and perform a piece for the College

community. These performances are renowned for their

polished finishes and mature interpretations.

Debating/Public Speaking

Villa Maria College has a reputation

for crafting confident young women

who are adept at public speaking. At all

levels, girls are encouraged to take part

in classroom, school-wide and regional

speech and debating opportunities.

Villa Maria College enters numerous

competitions including the highly

contested Catholic Schools’ Bishop

Lyons’ Shield.
