Community Recognition Statement given by Jenny Leong MP in Parliament on 17th February 2021:
"I draw the attention of this parliament to Newtown North Public School who have won the Wakakirri Screen Challenge National Story of the Year Award and the Best Biographical Story Award. The Wakakirri Story-Dance Association host the Wakakirri Challenge annually which is Australia's largest performing arts festival for schools. In 2020, Covid-19 impacted the challenge and schools were unable to perform live so the festival had to take place online. Newtown North's story-dance was titled 'Greta' and the story highlighted the story of environmental activist Greta Thunberg and her Aspergers 'super power'. The film included quotes from Greta Thunberg's speeches set over the dancing and performances of a number of students recreating the story of the global School Strike 4 Climate movement. Congratulations to all of the students, teachers and parents involved in bringing the incredible performance together."
