The Gala Contest is a little bit like the Music Festival but it only has the adjudicator’s favourite performers. We missed three because we had to wait in the café bar for a lady to take us into the green room where two other groups were waiting. The other groups were called The Mid Yell Minis from Mid Yell lower primary the other group were two boys called Tom Tait and Attie Black who were piano players. We heard them playing a duet together in the green room but they left and then went on stage. Another school came in as we were leaving to go on stage. When we got out the room at the end of the passage there was a door which lead you to a long steep staircase. We had to go down them, when you got down you were back stage. We had to wait for Tom and Attie to finish and then some men helped us set up on stage. We performed. It was very fun.
