To celebrate the creative and artistic talents of students, Byron Bay High School is holding its annual Winter Arts Festival (a.k.a the WAF) showcase evening on Tuesday, June 18. 

The school’s Simone Museth says from 5pm, ‘Year 12 students will offer a feast of savoury and sweet treats and hot and cold drinks for purchase’.

‘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 Industrial Technology Timber and Metal courses.

Showcase

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

‘Patrons will also be treated to a sneak peek performance excerpt from Byron Bay High’s first-ever musical, which will be performed in full over three nights the following week’.  

Ms Museth adds, ‘Students have been warming up for the event, not only in our many rehearsal spaces in their free time, but also performing at the school cross-country event and at a recently organised gig at the Byron Bay YAC (Youth Activities Centre)’.
