Combining good music, fine wines, fabulous food (varied and plentiful) and art, with a few bargains to be had, Ficino School’s first Art and Jazz Evening proved to be a very enjoyable and successful night.
There were some marvellous art and other items donated by both the school and business communities. This generosity and energetic bidding for the children’s art pieces resulted in a healthy total of funds raised to support the ongoing upgrade of Ficino School’s drama facilities and the 2016 Renaissance Tour. The focus on the school’s drama facilities is particularly timely given the upcoming production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream by the Year 7 and 8 students in just a few weeks.
It was lovely to see not only current parents, but parents of alumni, members of the School of Philosophy and the Board present.
The children’s gorgeous class art pieces shared the limelight with the stunning venue. Our thanks once again to the Auckland School of Philosophy for allowing us to use the historic and beautiful building at 268 West Tamaki Drive for the evening.
