From The Peninsula 2021 at the Lake House Arts Centre will showcase the art work of 9 schools from the Devonport-Takapuna Peninsula from year 1 to year 13. The participating schools are: Takapuna Grammar • Belmont Intermediate • Devonport Primary • Belmont Primary • Vauxhall Primary • Hauraki School • Wilson School • Bayswater School • Stanley Bay School Seven of the schools participating in this show belong to the Devonport-Takapuna Kāhui Ako or Community of Learning. A Kāhui Ako is a group of schools which work together to help students achieve their full potential. It sets shared goals, or achievement challenges based on the particular needs of its children and young people. This biennial exhibition, now running for a third time, continues to create a visual focus and identity for the Devonport-Takapuna Kāhui Ako. It gives its ākonga the experience of displaying their art work in a public space and for many of our young participants it will be their first taste of being part of a public art event. The show will feature a range of different types of media and art disciplines.
