19 Nov Star Jam 2020
On Saturday the 14th of November some of our amazing students and staff from the Pegasus Unit at Pakuranga College starred in the Star Jam concert at Victory Convention Centre. Star Jam is a not-for-profit’ group that ignites jammers’ passion to perform all over New Zealand. It is an amazing organisation that encourages children and young adults with disabilities to perform and express themselves through dance, singing and performance.
Our students Emma McKie, Katrina Lee, Tom Roberts, Michael Bendikson and Alan Zhang are all part of various Star Jam workshops They have been working hard all year to put together performances that culminated in an amazing concert that took place on Saturday evening. We are very proud of all the performers and the show delighted and entertained a large audience.
We are also very proud of our Pakuranga College staff and former-staff who tutor and volunteer to help make these workshops happen every week. A big thank you to Aimee Cook, Tyla Maud and Sam Denton. We are very proud of our school’s involvement in such an inspiring event!
