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.
