College Lockdown Talent/Skill Competition!

September 21, 2021 at 10:46 AM

With the planned, annual SKC’s Got Talent competition, hosted by the Arts Council, unable to go ahead, the focus shifted online, and students were encouraged to share their skills and talents through video submissions. 

In an unusual year, alongside the more usual musical entries, some unusual talent was shared! The many submissions were clearly put together with effort and commitment – and certainly made for entertaining viewing!

The Arts Council voted on the entries and chose talented singer, Melody Lui-Webster (Year 12), as the overall winner for her vocal rendition of ‘Baby on Board’ – with a twist. Melody painstakingly pieced together multiple screens to give the impression she was part of a quartet! Well done Melody! 

Second place went to Nathan Dick, Year 9, for his take-off of the Lion King’s ‘Can you feel the love tonight.’ ‘Can you feel the Delta Variant’ was a plaintive solo, paying homage to the difficulties students are facing under lockdown. Third place went to the multi-talented Bernard Wang, Year 7, for mixing football, ice hockey, gymnastics and skipping skills, along with a tricky piece on the piano!

Honourable mentions went to Buzz Perkins (Year 9) for his incredible yo-yo skills and Patrick Yu (Year 10), for his drumming talent.

Thank you to the Arts Council, led by Sam Everitt and Hayley Adams, for organising, running and judging this competition – and to all the students who entered, we loved watching your videos!
