Minions, birds and tigers took to the stage at Noumea Public School’s annual whole school performance.
About 270 students sang and danced their way through a medley of songs in class groups at a matinee and last night's sold out performance.
Learning support teacher and performance organiser Shannon Feltham said music and arts program provider The Song Room helped pupils through rehearsals.
‘‘This year they’ve gone into every classroom and helped with the choreography,’’ she said.
‘‘The performance is a highlight of the year for the parents and the kids.
‘‘We find that some of our kids are really talented with dancing and performing so it’s something we like to celebrate.’’
The performance was opened with a welcome dance by kindergarten to year 2 pupils in the school’s aboriginal group.
The multicultural group also performed.
‘‘They’re led by one of our teachers who is Tokalau, and they do a couple of Tokalau, Maori and Samoan songs. The boys do the Haka.
‘‘They’ve all got beautiful singing voices.’’
Jacob, a year 2 pupil, and classmates dressed in an orange shirt and tiger mask for a performance inspired by Katy Perry song Roar.
‘‘I like our movements and standing up for myself, and letting no one be disrespectful to me,’’ he said.
Jacob’s performance last year had a spaceship theme.
‘‘This year is a bit harder because when were doing the arm movements you get tireder and tireder,’’ he said.
Year 6 pupil Maddison performed to a Justice Crew song.
‘‘We made the moves up ourselves,’’ she said.
‘‘I think everyone liked the dance because of the freestyle we did.’’
