This past weekend Jake Danson, Louis Laws, Myer Van Gosliga and Sam McIlroy participated in the Sheila Winn National Shakespeare Festival in Wellington. Jake Danson, Louis Laws and Myer Van Gosliga won the Best Student Director award.
All of the boys are contenders for an NSSP audition in Dunedin. Sean Young is already representing the region and has a direct entry to this audition from the regional competition.
The boys represented the school well. They wore their number ones on stage and were polite and respectful. Rupert Oakeley (Old Boy and Globe Scholar 2013) volunteered his entire weekend and was congratulated by the Minister of Arts.
The competition was fierce. No school got more than one award. The boys were the youngest group there.
