ABPTA Comedy and Music Night

ABPTA Comedy and Music Night

What a great evening we had at last Friday's Comedy, Dance and Music Night!

A huge thank you to all the students who danced, sang and rapped...they stole the show. Joe Bor made us laugh before rushing off to a gig in the West End, Dan Lee and Phoebe Coco, who'd met at LaSWAP (aka Coco Duet), returned to the Assembly
Hall. Dan said the last time he was there was to sit his 'A' Level exams, so it was nice to come back and perform in a more laid back setting!

Special thanks to two superstar Year 8s - Hawi Fekadu and Christavie Francisco, who
joined the line-up at the last minute. They wowed us with two duets and got us all clapping and dancing!

It was also great to meet Nick John, our Headteacher Designate, and to hear from him
and Sue Higgins on how they value the participation of parents in school life. Huge thanks too to Flora Wilson for compering in style, Steve Foster skilfully stepping in at the last minute to do the sound, Akbar Quayeem for helping us with our publicity and the school premises team for helping us set up and clear up. Many thanks to all the parents who helped out on the evening and brought food, our hard-working governors, staff and all the audience who came and enjoyed the evening.


We’re happy to say that we raised £470 on the night!
