SKC’s Got Talent 2018

September 28, 2018 at 3:54 PM

On the last lunch hour of term, the Middle College and Senior College turned out in force to support this year’s SKC’s Got Talent finalists. Six entries presented vocal, instrumental and dance items to the judges. 

Arts Prefect, Molly Griffiths, hosted the show, keeping it rolling with information about each act; her natural stage presence plain to see. 

The annual talent show is a student-led initiative spearheaded by the students on the Arts Council. The six finalists had been selected by the students themselves from across the age range, after a number of auditions leading up to the final. Those selected gave it their all as they competed for the coveted titles. 

From contemporary dance to block-busting rock, contemporary melody and soaring ballads, the items were a pleasure to watch, the student audience making their appreciation known. These were students who clearly loved what they do! 

Head of Performing Arts, Ms Jane Horder and drama teacher, Mr Ashton Brown were this year’s judges. With the wait over, the overall winner was pocket-rocket dancer, Ruby Ryburn. Only Year 9, she blew the audience and judges away with her diminutive talents. Last year’s winners, the Year 10 pairing of Sam Everitt (vocal) and Harry Lowe (guitar), once again drew the audience in with ‘Castle on the Hill’ by Ed Sheeran. In third place was talented songstress, Year 11 Grace Kelly, singing ‘Come Out’ by Emily Shackleton. Grace accompanied herself on the keyboard. As the opening act, the audience were immediately sold! 

We also heard strong performances from Luke Creemers on guitar; duo, Christina Harrison (vocal) and Jayden Welsh (guitar) and vocalist, Venice Qin. 

Our thanks to the Arts Council for their work to make this happen. The lunchtime show was much enjoyed by all involved! Well done.
