Mullumbimby High School held live auditions recently – in front of the entire school – for students hoping to win a spot at the upcoming Mullum Music Festival.

Principal Donna Pearson says, ‘We also combined this with fundraising for child protection with students and staff wearing red for day for Daniel.’

The Day for Daniel aims to help empower our children to Recognise, React and Report if they feel something is not right. For more visit http://www.dayfordaniel.com.au.

Ms Pearson also added, ‘Our first ever entertainment class managed the live auditions and three of those students have just been selected to be part of the stage crew for Schools Spectacular in Sydney in November. This is a very prestigious selection, as hundreds of students apply and they actually have approximately 100 students on a waiting list. Getting three selected is also very unusual.’
