Roma students show talent
ROMA State College was in full voice on Friday night as students sang, danced and performed in front of a packed assembly hall.
There were impressive magic tricks from Aden Culverhouse, as well as skipping performers and a special appearance from local favourites, the Food Fighters.
Event organiser Shari Hirning said the talent night was held every two years, rotating annually with the school production.
"Every year, we've tried to do put on a special performance here at the school,” she said.
"Last year was our school production and this year is our talent quest and we'll continue to rotate through them each year.”
Ms Hirning said she was blown away by the students and their performances throughout the night.
"The whole show was absolutely amazing,” she said.
"I'm just so proud of all the kids tonight and their efforts and it's amazing to see how talented these students really are.”
Meticulous preparation went in to making sure the night ran as smoothly as possible with the students rehearsing their performances for almost two whole months.
"The kids have been preparing for seven weeks,” Ms Hirning said.
"From the teachers' perspective, we've been trying to put this together for a while and we always want to be able to give the kids an opportunity to explore their cultural enrichment.”
While the students bravely performed on stage, it was perhaps the judges who had the hardest job in the room having to select the winners.
The best middle campus performance of the night went to Hannah Mitchell while Jake Parker-Bush took home the senior campus award.
Ms Hirning thanked everyone involved for making the night one to remember.
"A massive thank you to all the businesses who have donated, to the teachers who have given up time to put this together and all the parents for supporting the event.”
