Performing Arts is part of Iona College's Special Character and enhances our holistic approach to empowering girls for life. It helps develop many valuable skills in young people, from self-confidence through to fine motor skills. It teaches the appreciation of performance and expression while igniting one's imagination.  

Iona is the ideal school for any girl with creativity, enthusiasm and talent. As well as offering girls the opportunity to explore and enjoy a wide range of visual and performing arts classes, we have facilities that rival professional studios and venues.

Iona attracts teachers recognised for their expertise and girls enjoy regular opportunities to see professional performances and to learn from world-renowned authors, musicians and artists.

Rounding out the range of cultural activities on offer, Iona has a long tradition of success in debating, a small but proud Kapa Haka group, and we have access to a thriving private tuition programme for singing, contemporary and classical dance, learning musical instruments, speech and drama, and public speaking.​​​​​​​​​
