Schools Programme

Due Drop Events Centre 

After a challenging couple of years limited to only an online version of our programme, we are ecstatic to see that our schools programme has not only resumed where we left off but has already exceeded our target of 52,000 with 77,082 children and young people attending or participating in events, programmes, competitions, concerts, graduations, and other activities held at the venue. The Schools Programme’s Learning Experiences Outside the Classroom (LEOTC) workshops and events are FREE with 155 schools mostly from the Auckland region participating. 

Arts organisations such as the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Atamira Dance Company, Pacifica Arts Centre and Tim Bray Theatre Company have worked hard with our team at Due Drop Events Centre and have been delivering high quality experiences for our children. Throughout covid, The Ministry of Education opened the opportunity for us to work in the digital arts and offer online content to schools which we have seen an incredible up taking with 17,457 students tuning in.

We continue to contribute to Māori achieving educational success and lifting Pasifika students’ achievement and performance. We are the only venue offering regular performing arts workshops and activities delivered by professional Māori artists and artisans using Te Reo for instruction. The Schools Programme also collaborated with the Royal New Zealand Ballet to provide customised experiences for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders and special needs.

Community Good value invested through Due Drop Events Centre for 2022 is $350,967
