FUTURE stars took centre stage at McCarthy’s Got Talent.
Singers, dancers, drummers and even a ventriloquist brought their A-game before the judges in the school’s annual fundraiser.
This year McCarthy Catholic College students turned their usual foreign aid talent quest fundraiser and walkathon into a drive for farmers suffering in drought.
Year 11 students Abby Kelly and Sara Lui helped organise the school spectacular.
“It’s just showcasing all the students talents and abilities in one quick and easy place, it’s really good for everyone to see what we can produce and what we’re good at,” Sara said.
Run after the walkathon every year, it’s an event where all the creative arts students can showcase their skills.
“It’s really good for us, we get to show the rest of the school what we’re up to in the rosary which they don’t usually see,” Abby said.
“I’m singing today, I’ll sing 1000 years by Christina Perry.”
Students had three weeks to prepare for the talent quest and most are musically trained.
The goal is to raise $25,000 over the year and every dollar goes to farmers for drought relief.
Abby said the drought is close to everyone.
“I don’t live on a farm but most of my friends do and you can see it by walking down the street, the grass is brown if there is any at all – it’s very close to home and we’ve previously fundraised for overseas,” she said.
“But this is much closer to us so we’re trying really hard to hit a higher fundraising goal.”
