School’s tal­ent on show

South Waikato News - - NEWS - By ADEN MILES

The quest was on this month to find the most tal­ented at Ti­rau Pri­mary School.

The school held its bian­nual tal­ent quest which fea­tured 13 acts and 40 stu­dents at the Ti­rau Church Hall.

‘‘The pur­pose of the tal­ent quest is for stu­dents to learn the im­por­tance of prac­tis­ing to achieve a goal and work­ing with oth­ers as well as to give them an op­por­tu­nity to show their tal­ents to an au­di­ence,’’ teacher Marie Wha­ley said.

Each act was up to three­minutes long.

‘‘ The stu­dents au­di­tioned three weeks ago then were told who had made it through to the fi­nals. Since then they have all been busy prac­tis­ing dur­ing lunchtimes, af­ter school and in the week­ends.

‘‘They have been sort­ing out mu­sic, in­stru­ments, chore­ograph­ing moves, sing­ing and plan­ning cos­tumes,’’ Miss Wha­ley said.

The Hoki Mai Girls, com­pris­ing Libby Paki, Dana Winek­erei, Ari­ana Pet­ley and Chloe Cum­ming, were the supreme win­ners.

Danni Steiner and dance group Static Quo were joint run­ners up.
