Kepnock arts to shine
A NIGHT of fun and entertainment involving the whole school will be held at Kepnock State High when its annual Art Night is held next Wednesday.
The students have been busy organising the music, art and drama extravaganza since term three and music teacher Kelli Parr said the night would be one not to be missed.
"The theme is around the world and includes components of drama, dance, film, media, music and visual art," Mrs Parr said.
"There will be various interpretations taken from scripts around the world - such as the Vietnam War through to the Macbeth Shakespeare play which students have put together."
Drama teacher Michele Priestley some parts of the script go towards grading for the students in the drama class.
"The year 11 students studied process drama unit which includes these roles," she said.
"It will be a great evening for the whole family and is three hours of fun entertainment."
Mikayla Randall who is part of the year 9 signing choir said it was the first year they had incorporated sign language into the event.
"We are doing it as we have a few hearing impaired kids at our school," Mikayla said.
"There are four songs which a group of six of us who will sign to and I think it is really cool to be involved."
Year 11 drama student Samara Howard said she encouraged the community to go along.
"People should definitely come along and see what Kepnock is all about as it will be a night for us to show off our talent and what we can do," Samara said.
Mrs Priestley said with more than 250 students involved in the annual event it is one not to be missed.
