Year 4 wins first place for imaginative performance
Thursday, 25 August 2011
On Friday 19 August Year 4 students participated in Wakakirri - a National story-sharing arts festival that challenges schools to 'make a positive impact on the world around you'.
Students performed a story-dance entry titled 'One Voice'. The story focussed on the problems that human impact causes for animals on every continent and what they could do to make the world a better place.
They were rewarded for their imaginative performance: winning first place in the State, as well as the award for "Most Creative Use of the Signature Item."
Established in 1992, Wakakirri is Australia's largest arts festival for schools involving over 30,000 students in every State and Territory. Wakakirri holds live events in 15 locations, a live audience of 60,000 and online events involving 20,000. Wakakirri stories reach over 1 million people each year.
This year's event was held at the Derwent Entertainment Centre.
