Mackillop’s got talent raises funds for St Vincent de Paul

A dancing robot, singing teachers, cow jokes and a Beatles medley were just some of the talents that Mackillop showcased on Friday, August 26.

Members of the Year 11 leadership committee at Mackillop College organised and hosted their first major event; Mackillop’s got talent, in order to raise money for St Vincent de Paul.

The fundraiser included a bake sale, a mufti day, and the Mackillop’s got talent event, which encouraged students to step out of their comfort zones and perform various acts in front of the school.

It was the first time this event was able to take place since 2019, before the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mackillop College’s assistant principal Mrs Whelan was extremely proud of her students, their talents and their capacity to organise such a successful event, and was very happy with the results on the day.

“Our year 11 council has done a great job,” Mrs Whelan said.

“I think it went great. It’s wonderful for the girls to be able to stand on the stage and perform in front of their peers and the support they receive is always wonderful at Mackillop.”
