This year’s House Talent Show was the biggest and best yet! In addition to Prep children and parents of those taking part in the Final, we welcomed Pre-Prep pupils, plus a class from Welcombe Hills School, to join the audience.
The range of acts was astounding: from Rubik’s Cubes being solved in record time, to Columbian dancing, to interactive poetry recitals, to singing and dancing and original compositions. The quality of the performances was equally astounding; each and every finalist had practised and perfected their act.
The judges this year were selected from the Junior Croft Council, one representative from each Year group, and they had a difficult task deciding who would come out as the eventual 2017 winner. In the end, their choice was Charlotte K, who delivered a dramatic performance on the most enormous Chinese drum you could imagine! Included in her act was a brave and determined speech in Mandarin as well as gymnastics performed on the drum itself. These were met by gasps from the audience.
