Bancroft’s Got Talent
Bancroft’s Got Talent proved to be a triumphant end to a very busy School year.
A capacity audience was treated to a display of twelve acts from across all year groups which displayed the depth of talent amongst our pupils.
The four judges nominated vocalist Nadia Abraham (5N) and dance troupe “Unexpected” to fight it out in a final face-off, to be judged by the audience. “Unexpected” (L6 boys: Charlie Forbes, Charlie Langbridge, Calum Lomas, Dominic Jacobs, Theo Kaltsas and Chanil Patel) clinched the title of Bancroft’s Got Talent champions with their clever dance routine which had everyone trying to work out just how they did it.
The audience was further entertained by Rotary Young Musician of the Year Rebecca Leung, Mr Jonah Cushman, as he said his farewell to Bancroft’s, and a very special Glee tribute act.
The evening, organised by James Smith of 5S, raised a fantastic £2500 for The Good Shepherd Project, which seeks to protect the street children of Brazil’s shanty towns from exposure to the drug, alcohol, physical and sexual abuse that permeates the impoverished communities. This money will be used to provide equipment for the project to run games and crafts, and also to support volunteers working within the project this summer.
Deputy Head, Mr Mikdadi, said, “Bancroft’s Got Talent was an excellent way to showcase the variety of talent at the school, celebrate the end of term and raise a significant amount of money. The winning act, Unexpected, were truly unexpected and raised the roof on the night”.
