Wakakirri

Established in 1992, Wakakirri is Australia's largest Performing Arts events for schools, involving over 20,000 students across every state and territory each year.

The aim of Wakakirri is to teach students about themselves and others through creating and sharing stories and by this process develop students' educational outcomes, lifestyle choices and community awareness. A great story can change the way people think about the world around them and Wakakirri gives schools the opportunity to do just that.

 

Last years entry was called Boy. The story was about a deaf boy who was happy and drew pictures in the sand to communicate. A war between the king and a dragon is tearing his land apart. Unknowingly Boy runs into a fight and with a simple question makes them wonder why they are fighting and helps them see how they could be much happier.

 

The students did an excellent job and received great feedback from the judges.

"Spectacular opening with strong moments throughout. The dragon was brought to life very well – congrats to those inside it" – James Lee
