Artistic skills on display
The whole of Roebourne District High School pitched in to put on an arts extravaganza earlier this month for their third annual school arts exhibition.
Students and staff showcased their work in the arts to family and friends on Thursday, September 15 with a gallery of visual artworks and performance of an original musical called Thumbugungurr (The Upside Down), which students had written and developed themselves.
In the school-led production, students from every year group were involved in acting, designing and making costumes, painting the set, deciding on make-up and working backstage.
Staff also participated by taking on roles as make-up artists, photographers, caterers and members of the lighting crew.
The exhibition was the result of a collaboration between the IF Foundation, Boonderu Music Academy and the Roebourne District High School visual arts department.
Pilbara Creative Arts Initiative director and IF Foundation instructor David Williams said the audience response was positive.
He thanked the Roebourne Education Initiative, which is funded by the Woodside-operated Northwest Shelf Project, for supporting the show.
