IT'S that time of the year that families and schools look forward to. It's the Tadra Kahani show where students showcase their talents using creative arts in dance and music.

About 200 people turned up to watch and show their support to the participating schools.

First timer Gau Secondary School stirred the crowds after it informed the audience of what Fiji's fifth largest island was well known for and the hidden talents on their island.

With the theme My Culture, My Pride, My Kacau they hope to create awareness on the need to protect the extinction of the Kacau.

Gau Secondary School principal Sanmogam Naidu said the Kacau was a bird that was only found in Gau and nowhere else in the world.

He said the message behind their performance portrayed how the bird was preserved on their island and most importantly to inform the audience more about the bird.

"The people will be able to witness the hidden talents in our island I know we are faraway this is the first time we are coming to this show and we are very excited to show what we have back in Gau.

"We want to showcase this bird to the world and the other communities and inform the people more about Kacau."

Mr Naidu said the students performance also reflected how the endangered species reappeared on their island after 129 years.
