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.
The crowds were entertained by the wonderful singers of the Lorne Choir performing two songs.
A group of dancers joined children from Hermitage Park Primary School to show off their new dancing skills.
Finally some of our winners of the annual gala poster competition.
Well done to all the children who took part in our annual Scots Poetry Recital Competition. A winner from each class recited their chosen poem to the school at assembly today.
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!
