Young tal­ent shines at show

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Perera

A rich ar­ray of artis­tic tal­ent from young Kar­ratha res­i­dents was on dis­play at the Kar­ratha Se­nior High School Arts Show­case late last month.

Hun­dreds of peo­ple turned out for the an­nual school event, which brings to­gether stu­dents’ works in vis­ual art, mu­sic, drama and dance to show­case to their fam­i­lies, friends and teach­ers.

Vis­ual art­works in­clud­ing paint­ing, draw­ing, sculp­ture and pho­tog­ra­phy were the fo­cus for the first hour, be­fore a va­ri­ety of mu­sic, drama and dance per­form­ers had their time to shine on the main stage.

KSHS art teacher Tilly Greg­son said the show­case was a way for the wider school com­mu­nity to show their ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the cre­ative tal­ent and hard work of stu­dents.

“It helps the kids to see an end prod­uct and it also helps them to see what other peo­ple are do­ing — it gives them a sense of pride,” she said.

“If it’s up, the teach­ers have recog­nised that it’s good, and we’ve put it out on dis­play for every­body to see and they can bring their fam­ily down — it gives them a sense of own­er­ship.”

Among the per­for­mance work high­lights were a Year 9 trib­ute to Com­me­dia dell’arte theatre, a rous­ing con­cert band per­for­mance and three Year 10 mu­sic stu­dents per­form­ing their own orig­i­nal mu­sic com­po­si­tions.

KSHS arts head Leanne Hunt said it had been another suc­cess­ful Arts Show­case and she was proud of the stu­dents’ works.
