Extravaganza hits high note

WYRALLAH ROAD Public School held its biennial Extravaganza on Thursday night, September 17, at Lismore Workers Club, highlighting the musical talents of all students at the school.

With this year's theme of Space Oddity, there was even a visit from the Purple People Eater and Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines.

In front of a packed auditorium, nine-year-old Zali O'Sullivan-Smith presented a faultless Somewhere Over the Rainbow from The Wizard of Oz, before the school's Stage Two children performed a series of dance numbers, all to the delight of the audience.

One parent described Zali as an outstanding talent whose musical ability is 'just totally awesome'.

Principal Ralph Taylor said that he was looking forward to the next Extravaganza being held in the school's new hall.

“The hall is (finally) earmarked for construction,” he said. “And the 2011 Extravaganza should be bigger than Ben Hur.”

The hall should be completed during the next 12 months and will be funded under the Federal Government's Building the Education Revolution which began earlier this year.
