Each year Baverstock Oaks participates in the “Kids for Kids” choir event.  This is a great opportunity for those children who enjoy singing.  They practice a number of songs and perform these with other schools at the “Kids for Kids” choir performance. This is an event enjoyed by many and is held in Term 3 or 4 each year.

Each year Baverstock Oaks are represented at the HPPA dance festival. We have two groups who train hard during Term 2 and 3, a senior and a junior group. Each year they impress us with their dedication to dance and the wonderful way they represent our school and entertain the audience. They also then get the opportunity to perform at our International Food Festival that is held in Term 4.

To encourage those students who have an interest and talent in music we have a school band. They have opportunities to practice together and perform at school assemblies and other special events.
