Parmiter's Got Talent
This year’s Parmiter’s Got Talent took place on Friday 17th March. An outstanding array of performances took place throughout the evening, from song and dance to dhol drumming and beatboxing! The evening was convivially hosted by Shanil Panara and Marlon Clark, with wisdom and wit aplenty from our judges, Mrs Stevens, Miss Chapman and Miss Garnish.
The winners of the junior category were Lily Palmer and Sofiya Povoas, with a mesmerising contemporary/hip hop dance duet entitled You be you and I’ll be me. The runner-up prize went to George Warden with a performance of Paris by the Chain Smokers. In the senior category, our host Shanil with his duet partner Peggy-Sue Mackey took the winners’ prize with a performance of La Vie en Rose by Édith Piaf; Himee Senanayake was the runner-up with a soulful rendition of The House we Never Built by Gabrielle Aplin.
Many thanks to Olly Bourton for doing a great job running the sound and lighting for the show and to all of the True Adventure staff and students for their hard work organising the event. The evening raised a very impressive £735 for our work with Better Lives, and the project work that students will be undertaking in the Tanzanian villages of Kindwitwi, Lishe Bora and Tupendane this summer.
