Talent Show

Congratulations to Aimal and Zmarak Ahmed Khan, winners of this year’s Talent Show, which took place on the evening of Wednesday 7 October, with their guitar and vocals rendition of “40 Day Dream”. Well done to everyone who took part – Kirsty Anderson, “Mordon”, Rhys Williams, James Maan, Matthew Hamilton, dance group “Fusion”, Ewa Langiewicz, Samantha Duff, and Aiden Matheson and Sean McHugh.

Our MC for thieving was Erin Stringer (S6), whilst sound and lighting was down to an excellent standard by Angus Whitton and Greg Anderson. Callum Stuart and Ciaran Longmuir did an excellent job backstage. Thank you to Mr Morrison for looking after the ticket sales, and to our judges (who had a very difficult job!) Mrs Ogg-Lumsden, Laura Thom (S6) and Lori Davidson (S6).

A special thank you goes to Mr Arthur McKerron, who kindly built and donated an access ramp for the stage. We are extremely grateful for this and out  young people will benefit from this for years to come.
