Jonno has a solid gold ambition – to be crowned champion of something.  Anything!  The challenge is to find out what exactly he may be able to shine at. To complicate matters, every time he thinks he has the answer Claire is there challenging him!  There is a story to be told but the question is who is going to get to tell it?  Get ready to cheer, sing, dance and get involved as these characters go head to head with the audience towards the moment we hear the announcement ‘And The Winner Is…’

And The Winner Is… combines a love of reading and books with a celebration of diversity and competition! Watch a selection of the best New Zealand Children’s Books come to life, encouraging students to engage with reading in an active and energetic manner and reinforcing the idea of inclusiveness and celebration of endeavor rather than competitive results.

Perform Education Virtual Incursion


Due to COVID-19 government imposed restrictions, Perform Education will be offering VIRTUAL INCURSIONS during 2020!

Our performances are captured live-on-film with multi-cameras and in high definition - so everyone watches from the best seat in the house. The performance also includes interactive segments with questions, activities and guided discussions, allowing your students to dig deep into the key learning points while being active, engaged and having fun!

After the performance you can watch a selection of Q&A videos, and also schedule a live-stream chat with our performers and creatives, enabling your students to answer questions and be heard. Included in the online educational portal is a trove of digital resources and games that can be accessed either from school or home all year so the fun doesn't stop.

Hosting a Perform Education Virtual Incursion means your whole school can be involved whether having a large group viewing, classroom by classroom sessions, or watching individually from home.

One of the best shows I have seen....and I've seen a lot. Easy clear message, nice connections to the books, relevant and enjoyable.
