Our three days of Talent Quest heats culminated in a final that really showcased the tremendous talents of our students.
First up was year 8 student, Minh Ho, with an electrifying guitar performance followed by year 7 Maddie Walker whose vocal performance of a classic musical was beautiful and vivacious. Bommi in year 13 with her hip hop choreography lit up the whole gym – she was very focused and is a super talented dancer! Following Bommi was Saara in year 8 who performed a very special traditional Indian dance. Her connection to the music was very moving and was felt through her whole performance. Next was ‘Washington Heights’ a group of students from year 10 to year 13 who performed a rap-style musical song about what they would do if they won the lottery. It was extremely entertaining! After that act was a trio of musicians who played their version of 21 Savages ‘Bank Account’. It was superbly unique and they are all very talented! Next up was Kaide who’s hip hop dancing was entertaining and full of enthusiasm, followed by Gianni with a touching and emotional song that she wrote herself. The last performance was Kyle in year 13 who played the electric guitar – another amazing performance.
While the judges deliberated we were treated to a very special guest performance from a few members of the teaching staff who entertained us with dancing, singing and a whole lot of laughing. It was a difficult decision, but the judges finally decided on their top four.
Congratulations go to the:
1st Place : Washington Heights
2nd Place Equal : Gianni-Mia Attrill-Dowling and Kyle Mahadevan
3rd Place : Kaide Toia
Well done to everyone who took part and a special thank you to the Student Council for organising the event and to the judges for their time.
