Interview with Sarah McLeod

Students from Banora Point High School presented their version of the Academy Awards this week when the school’s creative and performing arts department held its annual Brave Arts night.

The fifth edition of the event filled the school’s hall to the rafters and saw students showcase dance, drama, photography, and visual art and design.

Billed as an ‘exhibition of excellence’, the show elicited a string of encouragements from fellow students in the audience and put plenty of satisfied smiles on the faces of proud parents, siblings and teachers.

Apart from a series of dance and drama performances, the evening featured a fashion show and a very creative HSC dance film choreographed by Ariana Deeley, who showed a lot of promise as dancer and filmmaker.

The evening raised around $750 which will be used to procure new equipment for the school’s arts department.
