AGGS has many unique traditions that take place yearly; one of these being the iconic last day of the Christmas term. This year it consisted of the year 13 panto, a talent show hosted by Bazarr and the infamous Christmas stalls!
The talent show had many unique contestants from all year groups, including:
And finally, a guest performance from last year’s winner, Sophia, who entertained the audience whilst the judges made the all important decision!
All the performances this year were truly unforgettable, but unfortunately there could only be two winners. This year’s winners were…. *drumroll* Jade in Year 11 and The Bollywood Dancers -congratulations to both of them!
A big thank you to everyone who took part in the Talent Show this year, as well as the ‘elves’ helping backstage!
Overall, Charity Day was a huge success. Collectively we managed to raise over £2, 500 by running stalls, collecting donations for a brilliant talent show and a very amusing, relatable Sixth Form pantomime.
This money will be split between 3 charities:
- Human Appeal, which is our chosen charity for the term
- Zephania, our partner school in South Africa. We provide essential resources for them
- ‘Friends of Oliver’. Oliver is a local child who has a condition which turns his muscle and connective tissue into bone, meaning as he grows up he will have an active mind, trapped in a body that can’t move. The charity raises money for research into the condition as it is possible that a cure can be found within Oliver’s lifetime.
Hope you all have a relaxing Christmas holiday!
