Rollerskates, skipping ropes, drums and vocals were just a few of the many talents on show at Parkfield Primary School on Wednesday.

Students from Year 1 through to Year 6 were invited to showcase their unique talents in front of a live audience at the Parkfield’s Got Talent show.

Now in its second year, Parkfield’s Got Talent saw 150 students take part in a lunchtime program which ran twice a week over 10 weeks and was organised by Parkfield’s associate principals Michael Brooks and Rachael Harper.

“The competition gives students the opportunity to shine and perform on stage,” Ms Harper said.

“The children amazed us every week with their courage and enthusiasm as performers and respect and self discipline as an audience,” Ms Harper said.

Teachers, students and parents were invited along to the grand final where 35 children performed 19 various acts and competed for the winning title.

Student councillors from the school judged each act and chose the winners after each heat.

Year 2 student Brodie Pippin won the competition for juniors, singing Guy Sebastian’s song Choir.

Talent from the seniors was tough for the judges, resulting in Alex Docherty’s performance on the electric guitar sharing first place with Holly Stubbs, Mia Repacholi and Olivia Templeton’s dance act.
