WelCom July 2017: Students from Garin College and St Mary’s College were among the performers in the annual student-led dance and music competition called Stage Challenge. The Wellington section was held on 1 June at the Te Rauparaha Arena, Porirua. This annual student production aims to motivate and inspire students to lead positive pro-active lives by giving them a ‘natural high’. Students are involved in every aspect of performance – from set construction and choreography to hair, make-up and costume design. Stage Challenge is New Zealand’s largest and longest running, youth performing arts event and this year celebrated 25 years.
