Report on Talent Quest
This year’s talent quest was a splendid show filled with singing, dancing, lip synching and music.
It isn’t easy getting up on stage in front of so many people, so congratulations to everybody who performed. Thanks must go to the audience, who showed massive respect for the performers throughout the show. The night kicked off with Laurie Ruttersmith hosting the Junior Section, which included the amazing Lachlan Burne rocking out on his guitar and the brilliant singing of Samara Dodunski. This was followed with a short song from Jakob Twidle, Iain Collings, Liam Donald and Laurie Ruttersmith. This was a truly ghastly version of a piece from the movie ‘Anchorman’, but hilarious none the less. Next up, Sequoia Erickson hosted the Intermediate Section. Cruize Murray-Faulkner bravely sang ‘the Way You Are’ unaccompanied and Keegan Brown played a catchy guitar piece with Georgia Tokona singing. The Senior Section, hosted by Jessica Twidle, featured an incredible duet by Rose and Jazz Lord and a powerful guitar piece from Monty Parata. Sequoia Erickson wowed the audience with her rendition of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ accompanied by ukulele. While the guest judges deliberated we were entertained with a song by Emma Philson and Friends, a rap from Jack Kingsford and Makaire Kopara and then members of the audience took to the stage to show off their best moves. With the verdict in hand, spokesperson for the judging panel, Brian Gentil, commended all the participants. It was a really tough decision, but huge congratulations to our winners: Lachlan Burne in the Junior Section, Tyler Tamati in the Intermediate Section and Sequoia Erickson who was the winner in the Senior Section and the Overall Winner.
