Woden School students let down their
hair and hung out rock star style at the
second annual Wodenstock festival.
The mini music festival designed for
young people with disabilities was run
for the first time last year by pastoral
carers Jarrod McGrath and Ben
Mr McGrath said this year even
more fun was planned.
Crowds danced around the main
stage to check out familiar cover and
original tracks by musicians from
schools across the ACT.
"We have had seven or eight schools
involved in the Battle of the Bands
competition," he said.
"Between each sound check, our
students can jump up on the little
karaoke stage and get involved."
Big cash prizes were on offer for
bands and solo artists.
Year 10 student Kegan Grainger,
like plenty of 16-year-olds, is
infatuated with rock and metal bands.
As he checked out the line-up he
said Wodenstock was a busy but very
special event at the school.
"Everyone is happy and relaxed," he
said. "Unlike other school music
festivals we have bands from across
Canberra rather than just our school."
Students got involved in the dress
like a rock star stand, ribbon twirling,
sponge throw and a sprinkler dance-
Woden School provides individual
education programs for years 7 to 12
students with an intellectual disability
Watching nervously as the pin a
mohawk on Ian stall got under way,
principal Ian Copeland said the event
engaged students with disability with
the broader community.
"There s social integration with so
many other schools but it s done in a
cool way," he said.
"Being teenagers is what it is all
about. It s important our students get
an opportunity to experience a music
festival in the same way everyone else
has that opportunity."
