Welcome to our Children’s After School Music and Arts classes which are administrated by Auckland Normal Intermediate School. These classes offer your children a wealth of enjoyable, educational and challenging activities for after school participation. The programme is aimed at 5-13 year old primary school students from our local community. It is subsidised by the Ministry of Education and follows the New Zealand curriculum guidelines.

Our tutors are well qualified to meet your child’s needs. While Auckland Normal Intermediate employs the tutors they are not teachers at ANI. Many come from other occupations and are experts in their field. As professionals they take their role seriously and work hard to ensure programmes are taught to a high standard. All tutors have a police clearance. Please feel free to make contact with them after class or by email. We request that parents do not wait in classrooms during lessons as this can make some children nervous.
Lessons are taught in groups which, not only lowers the cost of tuition but also provides a supportive framework for students as they learn together. The size of the class will vary between 6 and 10 students for a music class or between 8 and 12 students depending on the type of art class.
It is vital that parents work in partnership with the tutor. Encouragement at home to do follow up or practise activities is necessary. Attendance at lessons is also important, so please ensure your children turn up on time and with the correct equipment. Students must also be collected no later than five minutes after the class finishes. There is no before class or after class supervision provided.
