THE musical, dancing and poetic talents of Manjimup Primary School students were in the spotlight last week during the school’s Manjimup’s Got Talent competition.

The grand final was held on Thursday after a series of auditions and a semi-final before the day.

There were three acts in the lower school competition and four in the upper school competition. First place in the lower school competition went to Year 3 Nathan Fialkowski, who performed a poem called I Cannot Go To School Today! by Shel Silverstein.

“I practised the poem at least 20 minutes a day before the final,” he said.

First place in the upper school competition went to Year 6 Jorja Forsman with her dance routine.

Acting principal Natasha Omodei said the performances were “all amazing”.

“I loved that our students went out of their comfort zones to perform for you today,” she told the audience on Thursday.

“It was tough because I think they’re the best we’ve had at Manjimup’s Got Talent.

“Performers gave it a lot of thought and as a school we’re proud of you all.”
