Middle School House Music
On 1 June the four houses, Apollo, Jupiter, Mariner and Saturn took to the stage and displayed the amazing musical talent that the Kristin School Middle School has to offer. With everyone wearing their House colours the Auditorium was a sea of blue, red, yellow and green, a sight to behold.
Each house competed in three categories: House band, House solo, and whole House song. The wide array of styles and genres made House Music 2017 one to remember. The highlight of the day, however, was the whole House songs. With an ABBA theme, the Houses took the audience by storm. With amazing and upbeat renditions of ‘Money Money Money’, ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Honey Honey’ and ‘Ring Ring’, they got the whole audience on their feet.
We had some incredible staff members devote their time to the Houses, helping us to learn these songs as well as the choreography to match. Special thanks to Mrs Pitout, Mrs Rogerson, Mrs Newbold, Mrs Backhouse-Smith and Mr Duris for teaching us these songs and dance moves.
The 2017 winners are:
Band = Apollo House (Kunli Zhang, Christina Yang and Dennis Yang)
Soloist = Apollo House (Alex Gordon)
Whole House Song = Apollo House
2017 Overall House Music Winners = Apollo House.
Congratulations to Apollo House for this amazing feat, and congratulations to the other three Houses for their extraordinary musical performances.
