Students from the Corish-Wallace Performing Arts School proved that they don't only talk the talk when they raised €2000 for the Nepal Earthquake Appeal through the performance of their theatrical fashion show 'The Walk'.

The show, which took place at White's of Wexford recently, attracted over 500 spectators. According to Carmel Corish-Wallace, director of the performing arts school, the performance was very well-received by audiences.

'People felt it was great to see the children having fun on stage, while in turn helping other people,' said Carmel.

The 'unusual' show, which was a medley of modelling, acting and parkour, was performed on a customised H-shaped stage. Students showcased a mix of performances, from songs featured in 'Les Miserables' to gymnastics.

A draw took place on the night, with many prizes being donated by local businesses.

Carmel and her students said that they were 'overwhelmed by their generosity.'

'There was such a positive vibe on the night,'she said.
