Talent Quest

On Tuesday 17th December ten performers/performing groups overcame their nerves and gave it their all to compete in CSIS's bi-annual Talent Quest. Students and staff of CSIS were treated to performances by solo singers, rock bands, a circus-style unicycle act, comedic improvisers, hip-hop dancers, jazz dancers and Irish dancers.  Huge thanks must go to the Performing Arts Leadership Team who collaborated well to put together a really slick, professional show. Special congratulations must go to the acts which gained top placings, as chosen by our guest judges: Rachael Palmer and Stacey from Rachael Palmer Dance School (thanks so much for giving your time and expertise, guys!). In third place was Tommaso, Oliver and Josh with their humorous unicycle act. Second place went to Tyla Hira with his mesmerising solo performance of 'Riptide' (see photo). No-one was surprised when first place went to the crowd favourite, Boys' Hip Hop Crew, who had been working together this term to create an original choreography to their own, unique mash-up. The boys had cleverly put together entertaining choreo with some of today's most popular tik tok dances. Well done to everyone who took part or contributed in some way - the event was thoroughly enjoyable and showcased the incredible talent (and bravery) we have at South.

Kids in Town: Jazz Band and Rock Bands

Well done to CSIS Jazz Band, Torn Strings Rock Band and Ghost Rock Band who performed at last week's 'Kids in Town' event at Tūranga. We really enjoyed the new venue, which gave performers the opportunity to perform on stage and sit and watch other schools. Thank you to the parents who came to watch and gave positive feedback to our students. The audience loved some of our more upbeat songs, including 'Tequila' and 'Johnny Be Good'. Torn Strings' harmonies sounded fantastic, too! Well done to everyone who took part. 

Music Soiree

Congratulations to the 40 students who took part in this week's Music Soiree. You have made incredible progress since the start of the year and blew the audience away with your confidence, resilience and talent. Keep up the hard work!
