Junior Arts Festival 2020
The absolutely outstanding work of our junior learners of Art, Dance, Drama, Media and Music was showcased in exhibition, on stage and in film at TAPAC Theatre last week for our annual Junior Arts Festival! This year the event was bigger than ever with TAPAC at capacity for the show and over forty watching via a theatre live stream in the foyer. Students presented outstanding creativity in such a difficult year with so many performances locked in as a tribute to hard-work and a real passion for the Arts.
Special thanks to the Parent Action Group for providing an incredible assortment of drinks and nibbles to mark the occasion. Thanks also to TAPAC and staff for support on the day and at all events throughout the year. Thank you to all teachers involved who worked tirelessly with preparation and set-up, with rehearsing juniors for the shows and even more so for your help with the afternoon performances. A special thank you to 9Art students for assisting front of house.
Enjoy the Junior Arts Festival photo-documentation and special thanks to Nina Gastreich Photography.
Thanks to all for the continued support this year. Have a wonderful, safe and happy holiday season.
