Our look was so vibrant, especially the Takahe masks from Aotearoa. We were watched by so many in the crowd and desperately tried to spot our own relatives as we walked around the town. The Room 9 children behaved brilliantly (I can't quite believe how they kept going!) and I was very proud if each and every one of them. Thank you to Emi's dad, Alain, who joined the other guitarists to enhance our performance.
Even though we did not win, we were very proud of our entry and Room 9 especially loved our masks!
