WESLEY'S GOT TALENT 

The Wesley College PTA was delighted to support the very successful inaugural Wesley’s Got Talent held on 4th May. The PTA provided the prizes for the event run in aid of Habitat for Humanity. The TY Habitat team and their teachers worked very hard to stage this event. They were ably assisted by the judges Ms. McKeon, Mr. O’Brien and Mr. Delany who provided very entertaining feed back to the ten acts who took part. It was great to see the talented students taking part, there were participants from preps to 6th year. The standard was extremely high.

There was a special performance by some of the Wesley College teachers when they did a very entertaining Lyp Sinc battle. The male teachers Spice Girl Act just marginally beat the female teachers Back Street Boys performance, only just though!

The prize winners of the Wesely Got Talent were

                        1st place: Idanesi Momoh & Rebecca Lawlor

                         2nd place: Daniel Smith

                        3rd place: Finian Duff-Lennon

Ready Steady Cook

 

What a day! At 2 pm twenty finalists chosen from 60 applicants were given  90 minutes to prepare and present their dishes for judging. The theme this year was "Dessert with a Twist", and the celebrity judge was Johnnie Cooke from Cookes@ BrownThomas. It was amazing to see the participants calmly work in the kitchen under time pressure and all were able to explain to the judges what they were making, the inspiration for the dish and why they chose that particular recipe. We had many twists: brownies infused with rosemary, sweet pea cake, chocolate orange cake with jelly, chocolate fondant infused with lavender, and reconstructed apple crumble. There was a great display of various techniques used from creating sugar strands and beautiful icing to ice cream moulds using balloons and carmelised sugar.  It was incredibly difficult to choose the winners. In the end 3 Highly Commended prizes were awarded to Conor Heerey, Riodhna Walsh and Lucy Greene.  Third prize was awarded to Amy Lewis for her Coffee Cake But Not As We Know It,  second prize went to Sophie Moutray for her Trio of Desserts and first prize went to Mya Adams for her Reconstructed Apple Crumble.
