Julie’s Greenroom

Julie’s Greenroom – an adorable show for drama kids in lockdown. Puppets stage their own musical under the watchful eye of mentor Julie Andrews in this original kids’ series from the Jim Henson Company – available on Netflix. And… their Facebook page is full of fun ideas and activities.

Check it out, Brickworks whānau!

April School Holidays cancelled

We’re sorry to say that due to Covid-19 our April School Holiday workshops have been cancelled. Stay safe and stay home! Kids – call someone who’s alone and read them a story you’ve written! Drama is storytelling, and we need stories right now 🙂

Taking a break

Kia ora Brickworks whānau,

In light of the most recent announcements from the Ministry of Health we have decided to do our part to “flatten the curve” and cancel the last three weeks of drama lessons this term. While we do gather in groups of less than 100, the nature of drama exercises makes social distancing tricky, and we are not an essential activity like school. So we think it’s in the best interests of our beautiful community to take a break.

We can offer you a credit for these classes, or a refund. Please let us know what you prefer. We will have these all loaded and processed by the end of term.

Our ability to offer you the April School Holiday Workshops (20 – 24 April) is now uncertain, but we will keep you informed about this.

With love,
Lauren and Natascha

COVID-19

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update: the health and welfare of our whānau and communities is super super important to us. We are monitoring and managing any potential risks, and updating our procedures as needed. More information on COVID-19 can be found on the Ministry of Health website and Nanogirl has two great videos that explain Coronavirus and handwashing to kids in a reassuring way 🙂

July School Holiday Workshops just around the corner…

How is it winter already? We are staying nice and cosy at The Chapel and have had a hilarious Term Two, as we all focus on our Improvisation skills. We’ve seen some wonderful characters and whacky scenarios played out this term 🙂

We are now taking enrolments for our July School Holiday workshops! We have an awesome programme lined up for Week 2 of the holidays (16 – 20 July) and hope to see lots of our students and some new faces too! Each day ends with a 2.30pm showing so we can share the day’s learning with our friends and family. For more information check out our July School Holidays page then head over to EnrolMy to book in.

Term Two!

We have had a great start to the year, adding a fun new Preschool class to our line-up. Parents are really enjoying the fact that even though their children are different ages, our 2018 schedule means they can enrol both children in parallel classes at the same time! Less to coordinate on the weekly calendar 🙂

The April School Holiday programme is in full swing with lots of kids turning up for new adventures each day. We are ending the week on a high with Carnival on Thursday and Pasifika Storytelling on Friday ( in partnership with the amazing Ura Tabu Pacific Dance company).

Enrolments for Term Two are now open! Our theme for Term Two is Improvisation.

We teach each class improvisational technique, according to their ages and stages. Listening, making creative offers, accepting and developing each other’s ideas, building scenarios as a team… These are great life skills, and so much fun! We play lots of games and pick up skills through long-form exercises. The students are amazed and very entertained by the characters and stories they come up with.
