Lights Coomera Action!


It took 3 weeks of auditions to find our finalists for the 2019 Lights COOMERA Action! Talent show. This event was organised and run by our Year 3 - 6 class student council representatives and it meant that they needed to give up a number of lunch breaks judging and each of the performances. Overall, there were 106 acts to be judged over four categories - Instrumental Music, Drama, Singing and Dance. It was a tough gig but our student councillors did a remarkable job offering words of encouragement to all our performers.

This week saw us showcase our Runner's Up finalists (students who placed 2nd or 3rd in their category) on Monday and then our Winners on Friday. Four assemblies in one week was a huge feat given we needed to do both assemblies twice, once for our junior school and then again for our senior school. The student councillors were once again responsible for these assemblies, as MC's and supporting our performers with organising microphones and props. It was at our Winners Showcase Assembly that our student councillors could then demonstrate their theatrical skills by treating the audience to a comical skit, "Baking a cake!" It was a wonderful way to finish the term, celebrating the talent at Coomera Rivers.

A very big congratulations to our student councillors for organising such an event and also to all students who had the courage to audition. A big thank you must also go to teachers and staff who supported our student councillors in this role.

Finally, a massive congratulations to our talented performers, both runners up and winners.
