Students may stay in "Preparatory" for more than one year - however the level of work will increase to meet the requirements of the students.

Students in Preparatory contemporary have the opportunity to enter a JDNZ ExaminationNZAMD Medal Test and/or to perform in our annual End of Year Recital.

Preparatory contemporary progresses on to Junior contemporary.
