Krishna brings a wealth of experience to her new role; she’s a former teacher of performing arts, a gymnastics coach and has previously taught Maori art classes. She’s a huge advocate of adventure-based learning and says she – and new Holiday Program assistant Jane Alice Sullivan - will be bringing an exciting mix of arts and movement to the program, which runs daily at the Old School Arts Centre throughout the school holidays.

The next OSCAR-approved program, entitled Bridging the Gap, runs from Monday 6 October to Friday 10 October. The diverse programme of activities includes: Monday: Mandala art and an origami paper project. Tuesday: Painting/weaving and a stained glass window project. Wednesday: Mural art and a playground walk. Thursday: Stencils, rubbings and textures project plus team games. Friday: Popcorn making and a movie. Plus, gymnastics, singing, dancing and games daily!

Activities run Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm at the Old School Arts Centre. Cost: $17 for a half day, $29 a day or $140 for the week. (Subsidies may be available, please ask).

What and Where


The Old School Arts Centre is run by the local Raglan Whaingaroa arts chairty, the Raglan Community Arts Council, in a 19th century heritage building in Stewart St, Raglan, New Zealand. The Arts Council supports the arts in Raglan and acts as an umbrella organisation for Raglan arts groups and individuals involved in art and craft.

The Old School Arts Centre is used by the arts community and friends of the arts in Raglan, Whaingaroa, New Zealand for all sorts of art and craft from hip hop to felting. The Clay Shed, a community pottery is a very active part of the centre. The New Zealand edition of the Lonely Planet tourist guide describes the Old School Arts Centre as, "a community hub".
