Last night Lockers Got Talent took place – for the 8th year running. Lockers REALLY does have talent – it was the most talented show that I have seen in all of those years. The evening started with the Pre Prep doing a Pirate dance – the youngest boy in the school, Kevan, was on stage, totally unfazed by the huge raucous audience. The evening went from one strong act to the next, making it almost impossible to choose the finalists. Special mention must go to Jerry – he joined us this term from China and is still developing his English, yet he stood on the stage singing a solo to rapturous applause. The most zany act? It might have been Louis singing George Gershwin (literally!), possibly the Year 8 chilli challenge, or Ade and Theo eating biscuits, maybe the Year 6s demonstrating how animals eat their food.
Overall the quality of the acts was fantastic and there was something for everyone. The final was between the Year 8 Clowns, Olu, Patrick and Toby reciting an Edward Lear Poem and Oisin who played his own composition “Footsteps on the Moon”. The judges were split, so the decision went to the clapometer – very well done the Clowns!
Gregory has performed in every single Lockers Got Talent since he joined the school in Year 1. In recognition of this & for his high quality and amusing acts, he was given a “Lockers Got Talent Lifetime Achievement Award”, the first one ever given.
Very many thanks to Mr Phillips and Mr Shaw for organising Lockers Got Talent, to all the boys who took part & to two of the Judges for their witty and insightful comments.
