Creative Riverlands School pupils wowed a capacity audience at the ASB theatre with their own special wearable arts show.
After weeks of hard work, pupils took to the stage to proudly display all their recycled finery in front of hundreds of family and friends.
The eagerly awaited show was the culmination of months of preparation by the whole school.
Wearable Arts Show coordinator Karen Paterson say she was delighted with the result.
“I want to especially recognise the work done by the pupils and their teachers over many weeks of preparation,” she says.
Behind the scenes, an army of parents, teachers and support crew were on hand to help the stars of the show get ready for their big moment in the spotlight.
The event would not have been possible without them, Karen says.
For many of the performers, it was their first time on such a large stage, performing in front of such a huge crowd.
But all went well on the night, leaving the mini performers tired and happy.
“A big thank you to the great Riverlands School parents and supporters who helped get the children’s outfits ready and provided such a wonderful audience on the night.
“Also thank you to Tamara Henry and the fantastic team at the ASB Theatre who were so awesome in helping the pupils and staff produce such a high-quality show.
“The children were buzzing and, quite rightly, very proud of themselves,” she says.
Karen says the sponsorship of the Redwood Trust had helped make the occasion more affordable.
“Performing on stage at such a large venue with professional lighting and sound was a special experience for all of the children involved,” she says.
