OLR REALLY DOES HAVE TALENT!
Staff and students were invited to share their talents with our school community in a 2 or 3-minute time slot.  Contestants could choose any way to share their talent - singing, dancing, magic, juggling, telling jokes, reciting poetry, etc. and were encouraged to participate on their own or with friends. The only restriction on the act was that it had to be suitable to share with everyone in our school community (no rude bits) and it wasn’t to be dangerous (to the contestant or the audience).
 
While there was a prize for the winner of the Final, the main purpose of this event was to share and celebrate the special talents God has given each one of us.
 
Auditions were held every second break for three weeks with 104 contestants participating.  (This is one-third of our students)
 
We congratulate the many contestants who nominated to be part of this happy community event.  It is not always easy to ‘have-a-go’ and stand up in front of an audience.  We appreciate the effort each one put into preparing and sharing their act. Special congratulations go to the 27 students who made it through to our final in June.

Special congratulations to our 11/12yrs B division team who finished with a thrilling win against All Hallows Primary School, to take out the winning trophy! A huge thank you to our staff and parents who were able to support our teams on the day.
