Last Friday evening, Cootamundra High School students lit up the Young Town Hall stage as part of the Dramatic Minds Festival. 

The festival also involved schools in Young and Harden with each dramatic group researching, writing and performing a play on a mental health topic.

The evening was all about using theatrical entertainment to eliminate the stigma surrounding the topic of mental health. 

Cootamundra High School drama teacher Helena Rosenkranc said it was an amazing experience for the students.

“Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely,” Ms Rosenkranc said. 

“I am extremely proud of all the students who participated in the show, they dealt with the issues surrounding mental health in a sensitive manner,” she continued.
