TV STARS: Beachlands School pupils, including Grace O’Sullivan, front left, and Cassie Curruthers, front right, had their first taste of fame when they made their TV debut recently on 7 Days. They featured in the My Kid Could Draw That segment of the TV3 show, when the comedians had to guess what topical news story they had drawn about. Grace says: “It was very exciting being on the television. Everyone thinks I’m a movie star now.” Times photo Teri Doran While every effort is made to run the notices, volume and space restrictions may mean events will not run.
