HALLS Head Primary School made history by becoming the first primary school to take part in the YohFest Peel region drama competition.

The statewide YohFest drama festival promotes health education through the arts, encouraging youth to educate their peers and the community through drama, dance and visual art.

Celebrating it’s 20th birthday, YohFest had only been open to high schools in metropolitan areas.

Halls Head Primary School’s Performing Arts teacher Sian Dhu said it was an honour to mark the 20-year milestone by being the first primary school to compete.

“YohFest was a much-loved part of my health and drama education when I was at high school, so being able to pass on the same memorable experience to my students is a dream come true,” she said.

Halls Head Primary took a cast of 50 children aged between 8 and 12 years old. They rehearsed after school twice a week for two months.

“The dedication and teamwork shown by the young cast members is inspiring,” Miss Dhu said.
