Year 8 Celebration of the Year
There was an excited buzz of anticipation as students entered the Dove to the strains of ‘Do they know it’s Christmas’. Year 8 COY was about to take off. Wonderful individual performances ranged from musical items, to dance and even a rendition of the Sasa. The class items were superb and audience participation was at its height as everyone sang along to ‘YMCA’, ‘High School Musical’ and other favourites. Danny Zuko got the everyone ‘bopping’ to ‘Greased lightning’ and when ‘Thriller’ began, the audience erupted! The class captains presented a humorous overview of the year, culminating in the well known ‘Cha Cha Slide. They also delivered commendable speeches of ‘thanks’ to their tutors for the wonderful work they have done all year with their classes. The highlight of the ‘show’ was the Personality of the Year awards when 2 students from each class were voted by their peers as people who made the class a happier place. There was a fitting end to the assembly when everyone got on stage and sang to ‘Moana’. It truly was a celebration.
