Wakakirri National Award

ƵIOS Awarded Wakakirri National Award

ƵIOS are delighted to announce that our 2023 Wakakirri performance ‘The Tree of Hope’ has been nominated to receive a National Award following their performance at the Awards Showcase on 7 September. Following on from the State Award received at the 2023 Wakakirri Festival, students were invited to present their story-dance at the event hosted at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA).

Students at ƵIOS in Years 4 to 6 presented a story of sacrifice and hope through dance, with their moving performance at the Wakakirri Festival being awarded ‘The Spirit of Wakakirri Award’ which was the highest honour on the night.

Principal of ƵIOS, Mr Phillip Nash, commented that “these Awards are a great credit to the many students involved, but especially to our staff for their dedication and hard work to prepare the students to perform at such a high level and with such enjoyment.”
