Tawa School were fortunate to be involved in the ninety-minute version of Henry V which was performed at The Westpac Trust Stadium.  Approximately 250 primary school students participated in this event along with some Tawa School students.  

Tawa School students were directed by Kerryn Palmer, with mentoring by Co-Director appointed by SGCNZ, Ania Upstill. 

Eight primary schools and a homeschool group rehearsed their scenes independently and came together on Tuesday 8 November in the morning for their first run through. Their public performance began at 12.30pm.

The production was part of Shake Alive 2016 - the celebration of the 25th anniversary of SGCNZ and the commemorations of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. Westpac Stadium generously partnered with SGCNZ to facilitate this event, along with the British High Commission, as part of its Shakespeare Lives programme.
