16 l Hi-5Ife By VANESSA HANDLEY afteR Nathan Foley is enjoying life after Hi-5. The 29-year-old singer, who went to school in Toukley, called it quits on the phenomenally successful children’s show Hi-5 last December after a 10-year run. Foley said his childhood interest in performing was encouraged by his parents. He recalls that one of his first gigs was at Halekulani Bowling Club in Budgewoi when he was still in primary school. But it was the move to Newtown Performing Arts High School that took Foley to the next level. And the suggestion to make the move to the Newtown school came from an unlikely source. “The principal at Northlakes High School [the late Denis Dinning] suggested I find a school for performing arts in Sydney,” Foley said.

I think the principal realised that so he took me aside one day and made the suggestion that I move to a school for performing arts in Sydney. “That school really showed me that performing was right for me.” Foley said the 10 years spent on Hi-5 have been some of the best of his life. But his departure from the show has given him time to relax. TIME OUT: At Erina Fair. TOGETHER: Nathan Foley with his Hi-5 co-stars. Foley spent 10 years in the group.
