TALENT reached the roof at Clarkson Community High School last term as students raised money for SAFE (Saving Animals From Euthanasia) in the northern suburbs.
The school council organised the June talent competition, with audience members donating pet food or gold coins as entry fees.
Science teacher Louise Hall said the pet boxes overflowed with donations and the event raised more than $180.
“There were singers, gymnasts and dancers who shone, with over 15 different acts in an action-packed show,” she said.
“The standard was extremely high, one Year 8 student writing and performing her own song while others gave breathtaking performances of chart hits.
Students also took on stagehands and technical roles, gaining insight into running a show.
