Talent Quest

The Talent Quest is an annual event in which students select, plan and rehearse an item which they perform at a school concert towards the end of the first semester. Performers can choose material from the following categories: music, drama, comedy or dance. The concert is a safe, fun and supportive experience in which students often take their first steps on stage. The stage team running the event is comprised entirely of students as well, and skills such as stage management and event planning are learned within a rich learning environment.

The Toowong Choir

Our choir is assembled during the year for various events, such as SingFest and the annual Christmas concert. Choir is an inclusive and supportive environment in which students learn repertoire from around the world. Students learn vocal technique, stage skills and build on their musical literacy whilst taking their place in a fun and engaging ensemble.
