This year YHS’s annual talent show featured performances from students from York House, Crofton House, Saint George’s and West Point Grey.
It was a great turn out; many friends and family of the performers came out to see the magnificent show! All of the performers were spectacular and showcased that they really did have talent. The top three acts of the night won cash prizes. Third prize received $50, second prize received $100 and first prize received $200.
Here are the evening’s results:
There was a tie for third prize between two groups of girls from YHS:
Olivia (12) & Samantha (8) and Alice (12) Carmalita (11) & Katie (12).
The second prize went to the beautiful and talented singer Valerie from WPGA.
Lastly, the first prize winner was Austin from STG who shared his self-written rap piece with the audience.
A big thank you to our judges Ms. Boteju, Mr. Brown, Ms. Marti and Mr. Superina for helping pick our winners.
It was an amazing night and congratulations to all of our contestants who shared their talent with us. It was a real treat!
