Kapiti College drama students took out the award for best visual impact with their performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the weekend's national Sheila Winn Shakespeare Festival.

More than 300 students from around New Zealand performed at Wellington East Girls' College, having already won their regions' Sheila Winn event.

Schools received awards for scenography, outstanding history, best delivery of text, best actor and more.

Kapiti College's group was also judged best for helpfulness and willing volunteering.

Along with the performances, the festival includes workshops and a theatre performance in Wellington.

Kapiti College drama teacher Siobhan Malley directed A Midsummer Night's Dream, getting the school a place in the national festival for the sixth year in a row.

Malley commended the students on the hard work they had put in. "The kids got a huge amount out of it, the workshops they get to go to, the theatre they get to go and see. They've all come away really positive and excited.

"The year 13s are disappointed it's their last year and the younger ones are all really excited about what they can do next year."
