great story can change the way people think about the world around them.
Wakakirri is a performing arts festival where schools from highly varied
socio-economic and faith backgrounds across the nation do just that.
is Australia’s largest performing arts event for schools - a not for profit
registered charity - with partners that include Reconciliation Australia, Bully
Zero Australia Foundation and the Victorian Government - inviting all students
nationally from Kindergarten to Year 12 to participate - which can be offered
within class time to meet curriculum outcomes or form part of a schools extra
curricular offerings - with grant allocations available to meet the funding of
registration costs for schools in challenging settings.
is often incorrectly presumed to be an educational performance opportunity
solely for public schools. Last year 20% of all entries received were from
Catholic schools nationally. We sincerely welcome your efforts and advocacy to
more effectively communicate the inclusive & sustainable nature of
Wakakirri to the many diocesan Catholic schools offices, religious institutes,
schools and educators in your network.
