At Palmerston North Boys’ High School, a wide range of Performing Arts and Cultural activities are available, and participation is strongly encouraged.
From drama classes to major stage productions and musicals, from the symphonic, stage and concert bands to the pipe band and rock groups, the opportunities in music and drama are extensive. Groups such as OK Chorale, the elite choir, are renowned nationally for their ability and for those with focus, dedication and desire, there are opportunities to audition for places in National Secondary School groups within the fields of Music or Drama. The School has a strong reputation for the quality and diversity of its music. Instrumental and choral groups cater for all levels of ability. Many young men start music tuition in Year 9 and then proceed to a very high level of competency in later years.
