‘Fabulous’ ‘Great’ ‘Well Done WPS’ ‘Best Night In Ages!’

Last Thursday Warialda Public School proudly presented their performance of ‘The Wizard Of Oz’. The Warialda Town Hall was filled to capacity with friends, family and Warialda community members. The night was a huge suc-cess.

The Warialda Public School would like to acknowledge the following people who shared their expertise and donated their time and energy to our production. Sharon Gilmour, Dwayne Nolan, Amy and Bill McIntosh, Rebecca Reardon, Jenny Waller, Angela Taber and Jan and Peter Hancock.

In particular, Warialda Public School wishes to acknowledge the support from Sharon McNamara and Adrian Kellett for their help with staging, rehearsals, props and backdrops, Rebekah Rose and Elizabeth Rowland for their magnifi-cent costumes.

Warialda Public School would also like to say a huge thank you to our parents, teachers and the wider Warialda Public School community. Without their help and support the children would not have been able to put on their per-formance.

Finally, I would say thank you to our wonderful students. They can achieve anything they set their minds to. Their ‘The Wizard Of Oz’ performance was amazing.
