On Friday, the whole College made their way down to the stadium to celebrate our annual MADD Day competition. The audience were treated to quality performances from all eight houses, in the areas of Music, Art, Dance and Drama.
This year's MADD Day has been called the best one ever! Our theme this year was "Hope". Each house prepared a Music item, which was a band performance of a song based on Hope. The winning song was "Waiting" by John Mayer, performed by Colliton. Colliton managed to get a crowd of their house to join in with the chorus, and featured stunning lead vocals by Isaac McKenzie as well as an excellent band.
The artwork display was one to be proud of. The houses all presented amazing pieces, but it was a standout piece about hope by Year 12 student Edith Spiers that stole the show and won O’Grady the art award.
This year the drama performances were filmed as videos, with the theme being recreating scenes about Hope from famous movies. There were some hilarious Lion King, Rocky and Avengers recreations which had the audience in stitches of laughter. Both Maiocco and Naughton were the outstanding performers for day as they tied for first place.
The Dance performances were a highlight, with large groups of dancers performing complex moves all choreographed by the students. There were some spectacular flips and leaps! Colliton took out the winning dance, featuring a large group of dancers who joined in for the final routine.
All houses worked extremely hard, and gave it their all. However, Colliton house could not be beat and was the overall winner. Giving them much valued points towards the Papworth Cup, which is awarded at the end of the year.
Thank you to the judges, maintenance, AV, Arts staff, House Leaders and House Captains who have worked so hard to prepare and present such as spectacular event. But without our dedicated performers this day wouldn't have gone ahead, so to all who bravely took the stage, we say thank you!
