Narrogin’s primary school students sang their hearts out at Perth’s RAC Arena last Friday, joining more than 4000 other students from across WA for this year’s One Big Voice concert.

Returning for the second year in a row, Narrogin Primary School was joined by St Mathews and East Narrogin Primary School to take part in Australia’s biggest children’s choir festival.

According to NPS principal David Harrison, nearly 80 Narrogin students from Years 3-6 were involved, with several even chosen to sing solos.

“It was a sensational night and the organisation of the event was just perfect to the minute,” he said.

“Everyone’s voices blended together so well, and when they echoed across the arena it was just really special.”

NPS student Kate Corner, 11, one of those chosen to sing a solo, said the event was amazing and had made her want to pursue a career in singing.

“I was really nervous because there were a lot of people there, but after we finished I felt really proud of myself,” she said.

Caitlyn Gill, 10, was selected for a vocal group solo.

“Ever since I started talking I was singing, so I really hope I get to keep doing it,” she said.

Sienna Blechynden and Chruz Alexander were also among the sea of students on stage.
