On the 5th April 2019, High Grange School hosted its first talent show, 12 contestants bravely took to the stage to demonstrate their talents. We are very lucky to have such a talented group of students and the performances on show ranged from comedy to cookery, from storytelling to singing with a dash of artwork and piano playing for good measure.
Despite the nerves, every single contestant got up to perform in front of a hall full of staff and students as well as our VIP judges:
• Jamie Thrasivoulou – Derby’s poet laureate
• Ben Holder – Jazz violinist and pianist
• Morgan Brind – Derby panto legend
The judges were extremely impressed with the talent on show and found the task of choosing our 3 winners very difficult indeed!
After much deliberation the winners were as follows:
• Zak Jones – Best Performance / Presentation
• Amelia Jacques – Best Effort
• Kade Roman – Most Creative
I would like to offer my congratulations to all of our winners. I would also like to extend these congratulations to all of the participants. Despite nerves and a room full of people you all did yourselves and the school proud. You are all winners for having the confidence and the talent to get up and perform and I hope you will throw your hats in the ring again next year.
Finally, I would like to thank all the staff and students that helped in a variety of ways to make this a success. In particular to Matthew Critchley who gave up a considerable amount of time to assist with setting up for the show.
Thanks again to everyone,
Jonny Salt – Performing Arts Co-ordinator
