Stu­dents show off pizazz

Per­form­ers ‘argh’ ready to give it their best on stage

Isis Town and Country - - News - By JODIE DIXON

BE­ING one of the small­est schools in the re­gion, its 26 stu­dents are not short on tal­ent or con­fi­dence.

The stu­dents of Booyal State School have been meet­ing each Fri­day af­ter­noon at a se­cret lo­ca­tion to re­hearse this year’s per­for­mance, Pi­rates of Pizazz.

The pi­rate cast have been tight-lipped about the show and work­ing tire­lessly preparing for their grand per­for­mance at this year’s grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony on De­cem­ber 8.

The Booyal stu­dents worked hard making the spe­cially de­signed in­vi­ta­tions and all were sent out to the pi­rate fam­i­lies. The com­mu­nity is wel­come to at­tend the grand cel­e­bra­tion.

En­cour­ag­ing the stu­dents and preparing the rou­tine was Michelle Brumwell, a Childers lo­cal and dance in­struc­tor.

“The stu­dents are ex­cited about their up and com­ing per­for­mance,” Miss Brumwell said.

As part of the arts de­vel­op­ment in the school, Miss Bramwell in­structs the teach­ers and shows them how to teach the stu­dents per­form­ing arts and drama.

“It’s great to see schools in­volved in per­form­ing arts and en­cour­ag­ing stu­dents to ex­press them­selves,” she said.

Booyal State School prin­ci­pal Dawn Dolin­ski said ev­ery Booy­alian should know how much the stu­dents have achieved with the per­for­mance.

“This is di­rectly linked to how fo­cused, in­dus­tri­ous and de­ter­mined they have been ev­ery day,” Mrs Dolin­ski said.

With the end of the school year fast ap­proach­ing, the school prin­ci­pal in­vites Childers and the wider re­gion to at­tend Pi­rate of Pizazz.

The young act­ing stars plan to en­ter­tain and dis­play their tal­ents for all to see.

“Cer­tainly show­ing their ‘Booyal Best’,” Mrs Dolin­ski said.

“Be­ing able to of­fer this ex­pe­ri­ence, where stu­dents are ex­posed to an in­dus­try pro­fes­sional, has many pos­i­tives, in­clud­ing those of role mod­el­ling, as­pi­ra­tion, con­fi­dence growth, re­la­tion­ship build­ing and risk tak­ing as well as see­ing to out­comes of the arts curriculum,” she said.
