Cultural affair in Eastern Southland
More than 1000 children from nine schools across Eastern Southland combined to make musical history at the first Eastern Cultural Festival.
Mataura, Waikaka, Willowbank, St Mary's, Knapdale, West Gore, Gore Main, East Gore and Tapanui schools joined to sing a selection of songs and haka in a one-off kids' only event at the Gore Town and Country Club this month.
Co-organiser and Willowbank School staff member Lisa Parish said the festival was about providing the students with a non-threatening environment in which to perform.
