Kids put on show

TALENTED students from Walkervale State School got the chance to strut their stuff in front of friends and family this week.

The students took to the stage for an hour on Tuesday afternoon in a fun-filled show for invited guests.

Teacher Julian Bond said students who had passed their year level auditions and performed their various acts on parade during terms two and three were invited to take part in the school’s inaugural The Kid’s Got Talent Extravaganza after school in the new hall.

He said the auditions were held on Fridays at lunchtime and the top performers were picked to show their talents on parade.

“The children showed us all what can be achieved when you put your mind to doing something special,” Mr Bond said.

He said the acts included singing, beat-boxing, various forms of dancing, reciting poetry and playing musical instruments.

Mr Bond said the extravaganza showcased the talents of the children from the school and gave them the chance to gain a bit of confidence and show off what they could do.

He said during the auditions the students decided what they wanted to do, and a committee watched them and then picked out the best.

Acts included the talented Year 7 dance group Extra Awesom.
