After a long awaited post, the SRC are back on the blog to celebrate the success of the Fairvale Factor. We were given an amazing opportunity to showcase the hidden talent of those in the Fairvale community and are extremely proud of the result of the show. For those that missed out the winners were...
1. Jordan Phan aka Yo-yo Boy
2. Johnny Quach and Shyamlee Devi
3. Trevor Pham's band
A further insight into the day can be seen with personal accounts from our junior SRC members, Kim Tran (Year 10) and Kevin Tran (Year 8).
"As you all know, Fairvale High School hosted an event in term 1 where students displayed their talents to the school. What you might not know is the feverish planning that went into the smooth running of the Fairvale Factor.
The day was busy for all involved in the show. Managers and their assistants ran to and fro, making sure that everything was in order. Contestants were rehearsing their acts repeatedly, ensuring that their performances were outstanding.
We ran through a practice Fairvale Factor during the first half of the day. Even though it was a practice run, I could feel the adrenaline pumping through every single performer there. All around me was a frenzy of rehearsals. I caught glimpses of dancing, heard snippets of songs and there was a guitar playing perpetually in the background. It wasn’t the excitement and eagerness that exemplified Fairvale High School’s energetic spirit, but the extraordinary sense of bond. Students from all grades came together, cheered for one another and provided solace for anyone experiencing a strong bout of nerves.
When the Fairvale Factor officially began, I could feel the enthusiasm. Students flooded into the hall and we were given the task of directing them into lines. Amidst the noise and chatter, we succeeded with efficiency. Backstage, performers had already changed into their outfits and were rehearsing and chatting.
The event’s opening was incredible. The Bini Shell exploded with applause and cheers afterwards and was an indication of the kind of reaction all performances received from the audience. Slowly contestants went on and performed.
There was astounding support for all the performers and the hosts.
The Fairvale Factor ran smoothly, with only a few hiccups along the way. The performers were amazing and the audience’s support and encouragement was simply fantastic.
Thanks to all who was involved – you all did an amazing job!
Special thanks to all teachers involved in the Fairvale Factor – this would not have been possible without you all.
"After heaps of preparation and management, Fairvale High School successfully hosted the Fairvale Factor! With panicking contestants and worrying managers, the event was difficult to run. Yet with everyone’s contribution – from the SRC, teachers, performers and fellow students – the day turned out great.
One of the most important aspects of the show was the preparation beforehand. Ms Hablos and Ms Nguyen were the guidance of the show. With the help of managers and their assistants, the SRC co-ordinators were driven to successfully build a strong foundation of the event. This helped then contestants practice before the show without any major disruptions.
I would describe the contestants is affable and essentially diligent before and after their performances. The opinions of contestants whether proficient or not, did not help see the contestants’ true identity. In my opinion, no one has the right to choose the true winner of the event.
Congratulations to all the contestants who participated in the Fairvale Factor. From Gordon Phan, winner of the 2014 Fairvale Factor:
“… I felt a little bit stressed, nervous and confident. As I went on stage and performed, the whole school was looking at me. Overall, Fairvale Factor was great. I like the Fairvale Factor because we can have fun and meet new people. I am humble to the other contestants, congratulate them and tell them they all did very well.”
I like to thank the hosts, Syprus and Kevin for helping with the event and humouring the audience. Finally, I like to thank for the teachers who were involved during the event.
