Well done to all our incredible contestants who took part in this year’s K-Factor Talent Show 2023 this morning. The talent this year once again was incredibly high. The acts included singing performances as well as piano, cello, guitar, stand-up comedy and drama performances. Congratulations to this year’s winners and a big thank to Mr O’Driscoll, Ms Brennan and Ms Jones, who put a lot of energy into the organisation. It was an amazing show enjoyed by all.
Modelled on the X Factor TV show, every year students have the opportunity to demonstrate their talent in the K-Factor talent show. The judging panel is made up of teachers and students and prizes are awards for different categories: The Most Energetic Performance, The Weirdest & Most Wonderful Performance, The Most Moving Performance, The One Most Likely To Go Viral and The One To Watch.
