Music Practice students held their annual Nestival showcase at the college on May 21.
As well as performing styles ranging from jazz and rock to RnB, the students also planned and promoted the event for their final unit of the year.
Nestival was held in the café from 1-5pm, and the students sold wristbands and refreshments to raise money for mental health charity Stem4.
Sammy Turley sang covers of tracks by artists including Mariah Carey and Ariana Grande, as well as performing Christina Aguilera’s Contigo en la Distancia in Spanish.
“I’m happy with how my performance went,” said Sammy, who is going to the University of Canterbury in September to study Performing Arts, specialising in vocal studies.
“I’ve learnt so much on this course about how to perform, from how to warm up to how to manage my nerves, so it was good to end the course with a unit like this.”
Section leader Sapphira Gold said: “The students did really well with the organisation, promotion and performances – they showcased their eclectic styles and I’m sure they all learnt from each other.
“I’m also really proud that they took the decision as a class to raise money for such a worthwhile charity.”
Stem4 focuses on eating disorders, self harm, depression, anxiety and addiction, and aims to improve teenage mental health by stemming mental health issues at an early age.
