Murray Bridge South Primary School's 2019 Wakakirri performance will highlight immigrant stories

When given the opportunity to use their creative talents to represent their school, these Murray Bridge South students jumped at the chance.

A cast of almost 80 students, plus a backstage crew, will go on stage at Adelaide Entertainment Centre tomorrow as part of Wakakirri, Australia's largest schools performing arts event.

The story they will present this year, Reunited, tells the story of a South African family who escape troubled times in their home country, emigrate to Australia, are torn apart and, finally, brought together again.

It was written by year 7 student Casey Fegen and debuted before an audience of parents and friends at the school on Friday.

More than 20,000 students will tell their communities' stories through dance at Wakakirri events around Australia this year.

South school last year used its performance to tell the tale of the Thomas Foods fire.
