St Nicholas School raise the roof at their talent show
On Tuesday 4th April the pupils from St Nicholas School in Bromham held their first Bromham’s Got Talent evening. With special guest judges David Sibun, the chair of Governors, Peter Paget chairman of the Parish Council and local councilor Anna Cuthburt. Competition was fierce with 10 acts competing to win the coveted trophy with prizes for 2nd and 3rd place also.
Governor and Dad of 3, Paul Mortimer hosted the evening taking on the role of both Ant and Dec introducing the acts and helping them feel at ease on the stage. Dylan, one of the School Ambassadors literally kicked off the show with an amazing martial arts display. Then followed the remaining acts, which included singing, guitar, piano and a historical poem, all of which had the audience in awe of the children’s confidence, ability and of course their talent.
The head judge and local councilor Anna Cuthburt took to the stage after a short interval to reveal the results. With her beautiful singing voice Emma won a well deserved first place, with Laura and her amazing electric guitar solo winning second and a the beautiful poem by Evie winning third place. All the entrants won a medal and the audience certainly showed their appreciation for the evening with rapturous applause all round.
The PTA pulled out all the stops to raise as much money as possible from the event with cakes, popcorn, teas and coffees sold. The 50/50 raffle was won by Carly Hawkins, who very kindly donated the prize money back to the school.
PTA chairman Nicola Broomham said, ‘This is the first time we have run this event so we were unsure how successful it would be, but everyone enjoyed themselves and the children were so brave and performed with such confidence on stage. I think it will be something to look forward to next year”.
School Governor, Gill Moffat added, “Its been a great evening and it’s always so nice to see the local counselors working with the PTA and St Nicholas School. We can’t thank the judges enough for taking their time to come and judge for us and all of the parents and children who came to support Bromham’s young stars”.
