School’s talent on show
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.
