 MacKillop's Got Talent!

In Term 2, Mary MacKillop College held its annual Talent Quest, “MacKillop’s Got Talent”. This event allowed students in all year levels to showcase the breadth of talent in a range of artistic endeavours.

Week two’s audition process saw over 30 student applicants, narrowed down for Week three’s semi-final. After three lunchtime performances in the amphitheatre on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Week three, judges Ms Anning and Ms McKenzie then narrowed the list of performances down for Week Six’s final round. Eight finalists battled it out for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. These students were judged by five specially-chosen members of the school community, including two Seniors, two teachers and Mrs Clarke.

In Week Seven, we finally had to the opportunity to officially announce the winners. First place was awarded to Shreya Patel in Year 7, second place was awarded to Grace Calkin in Year 11 and third place was awarded to Paola Frangiosa in Year 12. All of the finalists are to be commended for the weeks of time, effort and determination that they put into their performances; Iszabel Autor, Grace Calkin, Jamisyn Chapman, Poppy Chapman, Paola Frangiosa, Rebecca Micallef, Shreya Patel and Yzabelle Relingo.

All finalists, semi-finalists and those who auditioned received a certificate and some great prizes donated from local businesses. We would like to say a huge thank-you to Birch Carol & Coyle Toombul, Ciao Gelato Nundah and Dymocks Chermside for sponsoring the event. Another huge thank you must be said for Ms Anning and Ms McKenzie, who oversaw and organised the whole competition.

The 2017 Talent Quest has been one of the biggest this school has ever seen and I hope that in the years to follow, we can continue to build on this success and keep encouraging students to be involved in this spectacular event.
