THESE small school students made a large roar to win the Western Region Drama Festival.
The entire primary cohort of Spring Hill Public School, all 22 of them, put their thinking caps on and their best smiles, practiced their intonations and acted their way into the state final in Sydney next month.
The group came up with their own script about the negative impacts of deforestation on endangered animals.
The children had been learning about Africa.
Student Grace Heseldell said it was a tough road but she was pretty confident they would win.
“I love it, I think we did a really great job,” she said.
“Everyone worked really hard and I can’t wait to go to Sydney.”
The students will be accompanied by parents and grandparents to make the performance extra special.
“Usually in plays it’s the boy who is the bad guy, but this time it is the girl who is the bad guy. We wanted to make it a bit different so I go around and cut down trees to make houses and stuff,” year 6 student Grace said.
Her favourite scene is right at the end when the cast congo off stage.
