College students shine on stage

Sancta Maria College has been making itself known at two of the premier competitions for New Zealand schools. Smokefree Rock Quest and Pacifika Beats are highly competitive events and the past two weeks have seen us enter both.

 Jarryd Zimri entered our solo and duo round of Rock Quest and gave a fine performance of his own composition, ‘Because of you’, in which he utilized a sampler pedal on his electric guitar (in the manner of Ed Sheeran).

Not content with that, Jarryd was back at Pasifika Beats a week later with Helen Pahulu, performing a beautiful song of Helen’s entitled ‘My Identity’. This was Sancta Maria College's first time in the competition and our students came away with the award for Best Song (not to mention Jarryd picking up second place for Best Dressed Performer!) so we can be very proud of our performers and their talents.
