AN innovative band won Rossmoyne’s Senior High School’s Rossy’s Got Talent competition, winning themselves a cheque from Riverton MLA Mike Nahan.
Year 11 students Titus Leong, Hansen Lee, Jordan Seah and Sean Lew reinvested the money back into their band, using it to buy new band equipment.
Rossy’s Got Talent was held at the school on Thursday, August 10 in the Performing Arts Centre. With the proceeds of the night going to charity, students were encouraged to fundraise and sell tickets to the event, with over $1,600 raised to help build a school in Arusha, Tanzania.
Dr Nahan commended the school’s Interact Club, the Rotary Club of Rossmoyne and everyone involved for their efforts in organising the event.
“It’s been a great privilege to sponsor Rossy’s Got Talent since its inception many years ago, as it is a fantastic opportunity to identify the array of talent in Rossmoyne Senior High School and provides great early exposure to aspiring stars,” Dr Nahan said.
“It can lead to fantastic opportunities for participants, as it did with Jason Ji, who won the competition several years ago and has since been to Nashville in the USA with Rotary International, and continues to perform at school events.
