Wakakirri is a nationwide festival for Australian schools that provides a platform for students to express their thoughts, ideas, and aspirations through the art of storytelling and dance.
Inspired by the belief that great stories can inspire change, Wakakirri is designed to promote student engagement and well-being in schools through the creation and performance of captivating story-dances.
Trinity Gardens School enters Wakakirri on a bi-annual basis each even year.
Wakakirri is led by one of our teachers and assisted by other staff and volunteer parent support. Wakakirri is a huge undertaking and extends throughout the year for students in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, with weekly lunchtime rehearsals and after school rehearsals, from Term 1 culminating in the performance in Term 3.
Students are required to prepare for the performance in weeks 1-4 in Term 3, which may involve extra rehearsals and dress rehearsals in the lead up to the performance at the Entertainment Centre.
