Rock Eisteddfod, Wakakirri and Musicals
Engadine High School is renowned for its success in Performing Arts. In 2007 and 2008, we won the national championships for Wakakirri Story Dance, a competition that included over 400 schools across Australia. From 2009, the organisers of Wakakirri decided to confine this competition to primary schools so we entered Rock Eisteddfod Raw and came 2nd in NSW, 2009.
Each year, we choose to embark on a major performance as part of Rock Eisteddfod or a musical. All students are welcome to partipate in a variety of roles which may include dance, drama, painting props or back stage crew. These performances have a positive effect on school climate and students and parents love the opportunity to participate. All of our performances are supported by a wealth of expertise from staff, ex- students and parents.
In 2012, we will be showcasing the musical "Thirteen". Matinee and evening performances will be held from the 12th June until 16th June. Stay tuned for tickets!
All major performances provide students in our Entertainment Vocational Education and Training (VET) course, an opportunity to achieve some of the required competencies.
