Hau­raki Col­lege wins Waikato Showquest

Waihi Leader - - News -

Hau­raki Plains Col­lege won Showquest at Claude­lands Arena in Hamil­ton last Satur­day in the sixth re­gional event of New Zealand’s new mu­sic, dance and drama show­case for schools.

Lo­cal teens cap­tured the spirit of the event in themes im­por­tant to them.

The win­ning team per­formed Com­ing Out, sup­port­ing the LGBTQ com­mu­nity.

Stu­dent co-cap­tain Bre­anna Baker said that it was im­por­tant to the team to use the plat­form to pro­mote a mes­sage.

“When we were plan­ning our theme for Showquest, we sat down and asked our­selves what was go­ing on in so­ci­ety, and what was a mes­sage we could put out that would have a big im­pact,” she said.

Teams were judged over­all on their per­for­mance, sound­track, cos­tum­ing, chore­og­ra­phy and theme.

The col­lege al­sowon the Chore­og­ra­phy Award along with Te Kuiti Pri­mary School.

Showquest is be­ing staged in North­land, Christchurch, Nel­son, Welling­ton, Hawke’s Bay, Bay of Plenty, Waikato and Auckland. A na­tional on­line fi­nal will name the top en­try na­tion­wide next month.
