We were privileged to have Malcolm Struthers (double bass player), Craig Thorne (Orchestra Management), Anton Oliver (Ex All Black and narrator for NZSO) and Samantha Cockerill (Education Manager NZSO) visit and speak to our Year 7 – 10 students today. Their main message to the students was that the Arts are an interesting and exciting field to be involved in as it can grow the emotional part of us as people. It can also open many doors and pathways. Both Anton and Malcolm are originally from Southland and showed our students that it is by no means a disadvantage coming from Southland - the opportunities are out there, they just need to take them.
