Students at Coorara have the opportunity to participate in Wakakirri National Storydance Program, which is the largest national performing arts program in Australia. Wakakirri combines creative movement, dance, drama and acting as students take to the stage to share their story. This program is a great opportunity for students to develop teamwork, resilience and a range of stage and production skills.

In 2015 50 students from year 2-7 participated in telling the story "People Unite to Protect Marine Environment". There was great excitement as we prepared for our performance in August at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. We are fortunate to have a team of talented staff and parents working together to assist with making colourful costumes, props and choreography.

"A very professional performance with a very clear and important message. The costumes were brilliant and looked amazing on stage. The boat sets were fabulous and really added to the performance. I love the way the oil spill was executed. Very clever and clear. The creative movement in this number was very effective. Every performer gave 100% on stage."            Kristin Agnoli – Judge
