On Tuesday 6th July, as part of the Festival of Performance and Arts, students in Year 7 and 8 were able to watch the ‘Open Mic’ concert at lunchtime. Luckily the rain held off and everyone was able to enjoy their lunch whilst listening to many fantastic performances. Eloisa-Mai started off the concert with her superb version of ‘Gonna Fly Now’ from the film, ‘Rocky’. Sea then sang brilliantly with guitar accompaniment, a piece titled ‘I Don’t Know What To Name This’. Jessica and Faye were next up with ‘Good for You’ which they sang fantastically well before Hannah took to the stage to perform a wonderful version of ‘Count on Me’. Katie then performed a great version of ‘Somewhere Only We know’, which was followed by Carly who had us all moving to her version of ‘Levitating’. India then performed a lovely acoustic arrangement of ‘Valerie’ before Jennah took to the stage to perform the hit song ‘This is Me’ from The Greatest Showman. Natalie then performed brilliantly the classic, ‘Make Your Own Kind of Music’ before Grace finished the show with her fantastic performance of the song ‘Electricity’ from Billy Elliott. All the performers did an amazing job and Mrs Little and Mrs Cattanach were extremely proud of them all. Next year, we look forward to doing these on a more regular basis. Well done, everyone!
