Excerpts from our past Book Week in Schools production:
For 2020 we are delighted to present our Live-On-Film Virtual Incursion
AND THE WINNER IS...
Jonno has a solid gold ambition – to be crowned champion of something. Anything! The challenge is to find out what exactly he may be able to shine at. To complicate matters, every time he thinks he has the answer Claire is there challenging him! There is a story to be told but the question is who is going to get to tell it? Get ready to cheer, sing, dance and get involved as these characters go head to head with the audience towards the moment we hear the announcement ‘And The Winner Is…’
And The Winner Is… combines a love of reading and books with a celebration of diversity and competition in a production that ties in with the 2020 Olympics! Watch a selection of the best New Zealand Children’s Books come to life, encouraging students to engage with reading in an active and energetic manner and reinforcing the idea of inclusiveness and celebration of endeavour rather than competitive results.
LEARNING AREAS: English, The Arts (Dance, Drama, Music), Health and Physical Education

Book Week in Schools
Celebrating the best New Zealand Children's books of 2020!
Captured Live-on-Film our Book Week in Schools Virtual Incursion is educational and interactive for both students and teachers to be engaged throughout.
The performance is captured live-on-film with multi-cameras and in high definition, meaning everyone watching will be doing so from the best seat in the house.
The live-on-film performance will include interactive segments where there will be ‘Pause Zones’ to answer quizzes, complete activities, physical challenges and have guided discussions to dig deep and embed the key learning points while keeping students active and engaged - while also having great fun!
Hosting a Perform Education Virtual Incursion means your whole school can be involved whether having a large group viewing, classroom by classroom sessions, or even with individual students included from home.
For further learning and student interaction there will be a post-performance Q&A which will provide your students with the opportunity to explore some of the key questions connected to the learning points. Additionally, there will be an opportunity for your students to ask questions online with our actors and creative team.
With your own individual school login, the live-on-film performance will be available for your whole school to watch on the date of your scheduled incursion.
The Virtual Incursion program package will also include a range of hands-on educational tools with online interactive games, classroom and home-based activities and teacher resources as a tool to extend the learning. These tools are available to access for the rest of the school year to provide continued learning at school or at home.
