The SAINTS Factor

Wow, wow, wow! I have been blown away by this years’ showcase of talent. We had a wide range of talented singers, dancers and wild card enthusiasts.

Well done to all the girls who entered. Taking that first leap of handing in your entry can be daunting, so I am proud of everyone who auditioned in the preliminary rounds. All the girls can be very proud of their performances. A big thank you goes to everyone who supported the girls throughout the process, and to all the teachers who helped behind the scenes.

This year’s adjudicators were Claire van Niekerk (St Mary’s dance teacher) and Sean Jacobs (St Mary’s vocal coach). They both gave the girls constructive feedback and helped them to grow their talents from round to round. Thank you to these special role-models for making the tough decisions while enjoying every unique performance.

Special congratulations to the finalists who performed at the PTA fun day and of course to the overall winners of the Saints Factor 2018. Well done to all of you!
