The local finals of Mikolot were held on Thursday 13 May in front of all Year 10s, staff and parents (via Zoom) and the competition was tight! All five finalists - Ashri, David, Jess, Ari and Lucy - did an amazing job. Their prepared speeches responded to how the pandemic has challenged them personally, as well as links to their faith. Speakers gave outstanding responses and our judges – Rabbi Dan, Mrs Kagan and Mrs Russell - deliberated some time before making a final decision. Congratulations to Jess G, who will represent Carmel at the national finals later this year. Special thanks to Mrs Stevens and Mr Spurling for running Mikolot 2021. Good luck in Sydney, Jess!
