THE Digicel Stars team brought smile to the faces of children in Alotau, Milne Bay, when they visited Alotau Primary School last week to start auditions for this season.
The visit to the schools was a pre-planned event so the company conducted pre-audition awareness and motivate the students.
Head judge Allen Kedea, who also goes by his stage name AKAY47, encouraged the students to take education as an important opportunity and work hard in school for a better future.
Kedea told students education was a golden opportunity for everyone to snatch and excel.
“Education is very important for one’s future success in life.
“Just like Digicel Stars is an opportunity for anyone who has a natural singing talent to come forward, snatch it and get discovered.
“You never know where this show can take you,” he said.
He said just as education brought out the best in each of them, the talent search competition did the same.
“It all comes back to you to take advantage of the opportunity.”
The team presented the school with 100 back-to-school packs, two volleyball nets and two rugby balls.
Head teacher Emma Leisetta thanked the team for the courtesy visit, the gifts and encouraging messages.
