The one-day seminar, held at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery, gave the year 5 and 6 pupils the opportunity to perform for a group of school principals and aspiring leaders.
St Clair School music teacher Alison Caldwell led the musical ensemble that played the drums and the marimba.
The association arranges professional learning opportunities for principals and aspiring leaders and this seminar focused on the arts curriculum in schools.
Jenny Clarke, of the Otago Primary Principals Association, said the seminar was about teaching and inspiring and the children provided some of that.
''The kids are the teachers.''
It was also a great opportunity to show the benefits of the arts.
''It is reminding us we have one of the richest curriculums in the world and to be sure that we include opportunities for children to get into the arts.''
St Clair School principal Richard Newton said the arts also provided life skills for the future.
''It has an impact on concentration, perseverance and delayed gratification,'' he said.
The seminar was open for principals and aspiring leaders in the morning, and classroom teachers in the afternoon.
Business New Zealand chief executive Phil O'Reilly was a guest speaker.
