Great talent at F Factor show

STUDENTS of Fingal Commuty College in Swords gathered excitedly in the school hall for The F Factor, the annual end of year talent show.
Some extremely talented musicians and singing sensations were involved. There were 16 acts battling it out for the top three prizes. The four judges (two teachers and two students) had a tough decision ahead of them.
The hall was filled with great excitement and anticipation for what was to follow. Students were invited to dress up for the occasion; spot prizes were awarded for the best Christmas costumes worn on the day.
There was no doubt that students were delighted to support the many talents of their fellow classmates. Special recommendation must be given to all first years that took part and dazzled the audience with their many incredible talents. Hopefully, they will return next year and be even more incredible and dazzling!
After much deliberation, the winners were announced by the principal Mrs McGrath. Third place was awarded to a new student from 2nd Year, Moses Eusebio.
He sang and played a lovely piece on the keyboard called Brave. For the second year running Marcus Ring got second place. Again he brought the house down with his brilliant vocal skills and his rendition of Lost in Paradise. It was fitting that two 6th Year students and third place winners last year, mesmerised the crowd and took first prize; Gerry Gonzales on guitar and Merben Soco singing a version of Ed Sheeran's Small Bump.
It was a fantastic end to a busy term. It was a great opportunity to celebrate the many creative talents of students in Fingal Community College. Well done to all who participated on the day and special thanks to all who helped behind the scenes
