Lorne’s Got Talent

It was a delight to welcome a capacity crowd to Leith Academy on Wednesday night for Lorne’s Got Talent. With staging, lighting and sound organised by Craig and Jack (senior pupils) a trio of celebrity judges, our own dynamic duo compering the evening and of course our talented pupils – we knew we were in for a great evening. The acts performing showcased a wide range of talents that included; singing, dancing, art, science experiments, comedy, musical ability and magic. The audience responded appreciatively cheering and encouraging the pupils. The two hours sped past and at the end – all were in agreement that every child taking part showed amazing confidence and that each and every one was a winner. It will be hard to top next year with the bar set so high – but we are already putting plans in place to make sure this becomes a permanent fixture and bigger and better next year.

We have a winner

We were delighted to receive the news that Omolola in Primary 5 won first prize in the Leith Lives photography competition. She was the outright winner in the under 16 years of age category (pretty good going for a 9 year old we think!) Her picture was inspired from “This place is special because I live here and  that didn’t used to be loads of flats it was actually a rubber Mill.  You can see in title were rubber is made like tyres . Seeing this reminds me that I am at home.” We think it’s just brilliant. Well done!
