15th December 2016
The Year 11 charity day finished with a bang – unfortunately in the Trinity’s Got Talent competition, the Science entry blew the fuse! The school was entertained by 19 new acts by some of our stalwart performers but also some new names on the horizon. Under the eye of three judges the performers challenged themselves to entertain the diverse audience.
We were amazed by the courage of some of the stars who truly jumped out of their comfort zone; Archie Kent who started us off with his stand up joke routine, and soon had the audience eating out of his hand; Mr Milne transformed into Damien Albarn in a powerful and slightly scary performance of Song 2 by Blur. He was joined by other staff members strutting their stuff, Mrs Arkell and Mrs Fischer doing the Cat Duet by Rossini and Mr Larkman with his mind blowing 50 item memory challenge.
The piano was lit up by Victor Joss, Connor Hare and Lucy Davis whose intricate hand work left the judges spellbound.
Other vocal items by students of all ages warmed our hearts, and then came the more abstract acts! Josh Walker’s impersonations left everyone in stitches, particularly his Donald Trump impression. Jack Walker and Ben Clark ripped up the rule book and performed their interpretation of some great love songs and movie hits including Dirty Dancing!
The judges were left with the difficult (almost impossible) task of selecting the winners and the ‘Rising Star’ award - they were thankfully more Len Goodman from Strictly Come Dancing than Craig Revel Horwood! Our thanks go to Mrs Cooke and Mrs Arkell for their hard work at the end of this very busy term, and for inspiring all our performers to stand up and be counted.
