A wonderful wealth of Hornby talent was on display at our recent fundraising Concert for Nadia.
There was a generous outpouring of support from our community, with lots of raffle donations from local businesses, staff and workplaces. Performers included current students, former students and staff presenting an abundance of creative talent. There were songs and Shakespeare, dances and drumming, bands and the bard, poems and plenty of applause. Thank you for supporting her to reach her goal. In 2021 as part of the SGCNZ UNIVERSITY OF OTAGO SHEILAH WINN SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL Nadia was chosen as a member of the Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand Young Shakespeare Company 2022 (SGCNZ YSC 2022) and this July she will represent New Zealand over 2 weeks in London, training and performing at the Globe Theatre. We are proud to have Nadia represent our community, as the whakatauki says –
Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi, engari kē he toa takitini
My success should not be bestowed onto me alone, it was not individual success but the success of a collective.
