Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - LOCAL FOCUS -

KENT Street Se­nior High School stu­dents put on their capes for a su­per­hero-themed va­ri­ety show.

About 80 stu­dents from the drama, mu­sic, media, art and pho­tog­ra­phy fields took part in the va­ri­ety show, which took place on Au­gust 31 and Septem­ber 1.

Kent Street Se­nior High School English and drama teacher Rose Ben­son said the show al­lowed stu­dents to show their tal­ents and achieve­ments.

“The teach­ers of these sub­jects spend a lot of time in and out of class fol­low­ing the theme, which helps cre­ate col­le­gial­ity and a sense of pur­pose, and can be used as a teach­ing and as­sess­ment tool where ap­pro­pri­ate,” she said.

“This year’s theme is su­per­heroes with a few vil­lains and vis­it­ing per­son­al­i­ties thrown in too.

“Pri­mary schools are in­vited and this year East Vic­to­ria Park Pri­mary brought their stu­dents to the Thurs­day matinee.

“In the evening it is mostly stu­dents, friends and fam­ily with staff and their fam­i­lies.”

Mrs Ben­son said the per­for­mances were well re­ceived.

“We had so many ex­cel­lent acts, and ev­ery­one wanted to have a go, so the au­di­ence stayed, cheered, clapped and ex­claimed at each per­for­mance, all cre­atively in­tro­duced by our MC Shayna Lis­ton,” she said.

“The rock bands were bril­liant, the singers held the au­di­ence cap­tive and the un­usual com­edy skits raised a lot of laugh­ter; al­to­gether a great suc­cess.”
