Active Talent at Emmaus
“It’s no use just having talent,
it has to be trained and encouraged as Emmaus does”.
This comment, overheard at Emmaus Catholic College at Kemps Creek recently, showed the value of the College’s annual presentation ‘Showcase’.
Describing the event, Emmaus Year 12 student Emma Marie Green said “it was a particularly strong performance this year, with good variety and talent in age groups from Year 7 to Year 12”.
Dance segments allowed students to offer solo and group ideas with much interest shown in Lyrical Dance as well as other contemporary styles.
Asked if the Showcase performers display competitive attitudes as they prepare, Sabina Rak from Year 12 commented, “there’s no negativity at all. It’s really healthy competition and there’s a good spirit of cooperation. You see this in the way the students help with all the setting up and preparing for the event”.
An appreciative audience of parents, friends and students enjoyed the Visual Art displays. From beginners in Year 7 to HSC standard individuals there was a selection of works in mixed media. “Individual expression is encouraged”, affirmed Emma, “which made the exhibition very interesting for everyone”.
There were musical items, solo and group, all in modern style, providing opportunity for the aspiring entertainers to gain experience as well as to simply enjoy the creativity of instrument and song.
The entire program was applauded as very successful, with thanks expressed to the Emmaus staff of the Creative and Performing Arts faculty.
“A taste of things to come”, concluded Sabina, “we will be having an ‘E-factor’ mini showcase presentation on the day of the Emmaus Walk, August 8th. That will be a chance to hear the ‘Walkathon Song” produced by our Student Leaders”. Emmaus active talent indeed!
