An extraordinary display of talent was enjoyed by all on Tuesday 5th October at our very own talent show, which raised more than £1200 for our Indian partner School, Sri Jayendra. The evening was hosted by Chening Duker in his amusing, slick and upbeat style, and began with a dramatic piano piece by Laurenz Boss who set an extremely high standard. Other outstanding performers followed: Max Ephson Clarke, Zara Prodromou, Katie Billingham, Amy Welch and Cassidy Hansen, Molly Duncan, Assume 59 (Alex Slade, Izzy List, Oliver Galgut, Alex Living, Tabby Mainstone, George DeSausmarez), Jack Clayton, Nathalie Kosky, Room 6 (Shahi Ghani, Chad Vigano & Daniel Stern), Rose Miller, and an energetic and entertaining dance by Chrissie Jaruchotiratanasakul & Pamela Penawou.
Our honourable and knowledgeable judges for the evening were Mr McDonough and Miss Ekwulugo, ably supported with sound vision and all things technical by Johnny Groman.
All the performers were good enough to win, being outstanding in talent and style, but following an almost impossible decision the judges voted and the Headmaster presented the following prizes:
The audience vote winner was Room 6 with their casual and confident musical mash-up of Nothing on You.
After the performances Jo Batty gave a moving presentation about the serious reason behind the evening, raising money for our Indian Partner school Sri Jayendra, and many parents and friends were inspired to sponsor children at the school. Overall a great success – performers and audience enjoyed the show, and a substantial sum was raised for our Indian Partner School.
