To celebrate the creative and artistic talents of students, Byron Bay High School is holding its annual Winter Arts Festival Showcase Evening (aka the WAF) on Thursday June 23. 

The evening kicks off at 4.30pm in the newly refurbished Performing Arts Centre, with two performances of the Year 10 self-devised play, More Than Enough.

The play, although developed for Year 6 audiences, is relevant to all ages and explores themes of self-esteem and resilience. 

A pop-up exhibition of student artwork across all years will be on display in the office block, featuring colourful, vibrant paintings, prints and sculpture, as well as examples of student projects from Year 10 Woodwork and Metalwork courses.

At 5.30pm, Year 12 students will offer a feast of savoury and sweet treats including hot soup, sushi, sausage sandwiches, cakes, coffee, tea and hot chocolate with marshmallows for purchase. 

Student choir

At 6pm, the showcase begins in the John Collins Auditorium, featuring student bands, dancers, vocalists, short films and theatrical vignettes, as well as the 100 student-strong, massed Year 7 choir!

Luca Greig, an entrepreneurial Year 11 student with his sights firmly set on event management, has been ‘warming up’ the students in preparation for the WAF by holding lunchtime concerts in the PAC, the playground and even at the athletics carnival.

Last week, he raised over $500 for the Koori Mail in Lismore, through his in-the-round ‘Centre Stage’ lunchtime concert.

So, come along and celebrate the creative, musical and artistic talents of Byron Bay High School students in a night filled with theatre, music, dance, art and song.

Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased on the night with cash or eftpos.
