The, 5 and 6 year old pair, Georgia and Brooke Wilson, were competing for the first time and won their category, beating girls older than themselves.

Another Queen’s girl hits the big time in the Arts!

Matawai as Lady MacbethWe are delighted and proud to report that our 2014 Head Girl and Leader of our Kapa Haka group, Matawai Uiti-me Nicolls, has been selected to represent New Zealand as part of the Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand Young Shakespeare Company 2015.

This means three weeks of studying in London with the world’s best Shakespearean actors and directors, rehearsing a play, and actually performing on the Globe stage, to an audience that will include the NZ High Commissioner.

Around 100,000 high school students have participated in the SGCNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festivals over the last 22 years.

Previous alumni of the Globe contribute hugely to the national arts scene on stage and screen, and in administration and design, including the Oscar-winning Weta team. Ambassadors include actors such as Robyn Malcolm (Outrageous Fortune) and Rawiri Paratene (Whale Rider, Insatiable Moon) who is currently touring the world in Hamlet with the Globe’s Shakespeare Company’s Globe to Globe.

Matawai is grateful to all of the Queen’s community who have taught her and believed in her, and looks forward to sharing her London experience.
