Rangi Ruru girls feel the Make Believe love

Christchurch boy band The Make Believe felt the love at Rangi Ruru Girls' School.

The performance was part of the the school's annual Love Week to celebrate St Valentine's Day.

The celebrations would carry through to next week as year 8 and 9 pupils were on camp this week, organiser and senior pupil Emily Boyd said.

The theme of love would continue with a pink and red mufti day, a performance by Christchurch band Moorhouse and the school's barbershop quartet, candy floss and face-painting.

"It's important that the week includes everyone at school who wants to take part," Emily said.

"With some girls away, we thought a preview on Wednesday was a good start and then the following Monday, when everyone is back, Love Week would properly get under way.

"Of course we want to have some fun, but we will also be promoting the importance of self-belief, confidence, friendships, loyalty and supporting each other." 

The performance by The Make Believe comes just weeks before the trio of Mike Lake, Tyler Vivian and Matt Andrews are set to fly to the United States, where they have secured a five-year record contract.

The group, which has more than 20,000 likes on its Facebook page, will release its latest single, All For You, on the second anniversary of the February 22 earthquake.

The song is about remembering lost loved ones.
