This week in Culture we have some important information from Theatresports, Cultural Support Group, Co-curricular Music, St Pat's Got Talent and Film Crew.


Theatresports Grand Final 2016

The First Theatresports team competed in the YTS Grand Final at the Brisbane Powerhouse on Tuesday 23 August to a sell-out audience. The team, made up of Oliver Blansjaar, Jared Noble, Matthew Smith, Adam Lukacs and captained by Cillian MacDonald went out strong and represented the College with pride. While the team were defeated by All Hallows' School, they showed that they were worthy of their place in the Grand Final and worked collaboratively to entertain the audience.

At this time I would like to acknowledge the parents, staff and student supporters for their energy and passion throughout the season – your presence was greatly appreciated in the lead up to the Grand Final. Your presence inspires the team to push their improvisation abilities. It was fantastic to see so many St Patrick College supporters at the Powerhouse on Tuesday evening too. It would be remiss of me not to mention Ms Bliss and Mrs Garside for driving the bus and supervising the battalion. Thank you to Mrs Moir and Mr Samuels too, without their support and administrative assistance the team and I would have been lost many times throughout the season.

As the 2016 season comes to an end I would like to wish Cillian, Matthew and Adam all the best for 2017 and beyond and look forward to training resuming in Term 1 2017.
