The Faythe School's Got Talent - sorry it took so long!

Below find the lovely report penned by local journalist Anna Hayes in May 2018 and below that find videos excerpts from the event itself that took a ferocious long time to actually get edited / compressed and uploaded. The reason for the delay is L.A.T.E. (lay about teenage editor)...sorry again!

"Pupils at the Faythe School were treated to a top class display of talent recently when the first ever ‘The Faythe School’s Got Talent’ show was held at the school.

The idea stemmed from a conversation had in class one day when pupil Chloe Wilburn asked teacher Austin Gregg if he watched any of TV’s many talent shows. She suggested that the school should have its own such show. Mr Gregg subsequently mentioned the conversation in the staffroom over lunch and promptly found himself appointed ‘producer in chief ’ of the inaugural ‘The Faythe School’s Got Talent’!

Ably assisted by Chloe, Mr Gregg organised auditions for those willing to take part and from that process, 'final' acts were selected for the Grand Final two weeks later. Over the following fortnight, participants took every opportunity they could to practice before taking to the stage in front of a packed hall.

Pupils sang, acted, performed gymnastic routines and showed off their comedy skills. Between each act, Mr Gregg interviewed each performer and group before Simon Cowell, who looked suspiciously like another teacher in the school, gave his judgement of the act.

Pupils got the chance to cast their votes after the show before skipping away to enjoy their lunch. Votes were counted during the break and afterwards, the pupils were brought back to the hall for the results.

Sixth class pupil, and self-taught contortionist Dylan Dwyer** was presented with a beautiful perpetual trophy after he wowed the audience by eating an apple upside-down!

Great credit was given to Mr Gregg for taking the idea and running with it so willingly. It is hoped that the event will become an annual one."
