On Tuesday 21 April, twelve acts performed in the annual Williamwood’s Got Talent contest. The judges (Mr Getty, Ms Martin, Ms Hutcheson and Mr McLaughlin) were amazed by the high standard of talent from our school which included dancers, gymnasts, singers and a wide variety of other acts. The crowd were also delighted by the staff performance featuring a number of staff members who performed a teacher’s version of the popular ITV programme Take Me Out. The show was hosted by Suzanne and Tristan (S6) and featured voiceovers from the X Factor’s very own Peter Dickson. The judges’ decision was made easier this year through the introduction of text voting, so the audience could also have their say! First place was awarded to Danila (S3) who performed a dance routine to Chandelier by Sia. Second place was awarded to dancer Stephen (S3) with singer Rachel (S5) being awarded third place. The S5 production team, Jamie , Joe and Euan, ensured that the night was a success taking control of sound, lighting and stage management. They were also supported by former pupil Ross Gunning. The successful event was organised by Mr Henderson and Miss McKindless who would also like to thank the news crew at BBC Scotland and STV Glasgow; the staff at Sporty Kids for allowing them to use their facilities; David Hunter at Moving Films for recording the event as well as all of the teachers who contributed. The evening was well attended and will be available to view on the school website shortly. Some photos can be viewed here.
