QUEENSLAND is currently being treated to the creative and performing arts (CAPA) talents of Irrawang High Students this week, with several performances across the state.

After 12 months of planning, fundraising and organising, the 2016 CAPA Great Barrier Reef Tour has hit the road and is headed north.

On their way back the CAPA students, who consist of drum corps, dancers, drama students, singers and cajon players will perform this week at Dreamworld, and at Marketplace Warner in Queensland.

They have been invited by the managers of Marketplace Warner who also manage Raymond Terrace Marketplace to perform and workshop with students from Bray Park State School at the other shopping centre.

Word has it they also performed an impromptu performance for the holiday makers at the Big 4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort where they stayed.

A parent of a senior student on the tour told News Of The Area, “It is a wonderful opportunity for our kids to be able to go on these tours – we are so proud of them, they are so talented and it’s a trip they will remember forever.”

All reports coming back from the tour say that the students are wonderfully behaved, and doing the school proud.

It is wonderful to see our young people representing our area so beautifully.
