Glebelands students have X-factor
Glebelands School ended their summer term with a flourish with the live final of Glebelands Got Talent.
Performing to a packed main hall of parents and students, finalists from Years 7 to 10 displayed a fantastic variety of talents in all genres of performing arts.
The event began with hosts Oliver Turner and Sam Parsons in Year 10 wittily welcoming everyone whilst the audience watched video clips of the auditions.
Fourteen finalists then performed, including musical solos, duos and trios, a male dance troop, gymnastics, acted scenes, and even a beat-boxer and a banjo player.
The judges, headteacher Anne Hutchinson, PE teacher Stuart Ede and student Grace Skinner - praised on the 'fabulous' variety of the acts, making the final decision incredibly difficult. While they chose their top four performers, the audience were entertained with songs by the school's choir, Glebelands in Harmony.
The “Legacy Dance Troop”, pianist and singer Hannah Mansfield and The Buttercups, a unique margarine tub tapping quartet of Year 9 girls took the runners-up places, while the overall winner was Year 10 student Anna Holcombe who performed a piece on piano that she had composed herself.
