On Wednesday the 20th of June the Gosnells Primary School Senior Choir attended the inaugural Meraki Festival at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC) after we were fortunate enough to be afforded the opportunity to attend for free after winning a 50 words or less competition to have our registration paid! This meant 48 of our Year 5 and 6 students got a full day at the PCEC of rehearsal on a professional stage, dance workshops, team bonding and competitions before coming back in the evening ready to perform in an audience of well over 800 people.
Our group did an incredible job winning Best Theme for our inclusion and acceptance based Musical Theatre item that featured songs from Disney’s Descendants 2 and The Little Mermaid, Annie and Shrek the Musical. We also received very generous scholarships for Aidan and Aden as budding performers, and a $400 donation to make a Yamaha purchase for the school. We have had wonderful feedback from everyone who attended including the adjudicators on the night. Well done to the Senior Choir!!
