Such was the success of the first 2 terms of Junior Drama, funded by the Regional Arts Development Fund, that 2 sessions, instead of the planned single session were run, and there is every intention to keep the program going for Terms 3 and 4. Funding to help pay for a La Luna Youth Arts tutor to come over is being actively sought now.
