Smithdon's Got Talent
We are sad to have had to cancel our in person end of year concert this year due to the pandemic and government guidance, but felt it was necessary for the safety of all staff, students and guests.
However, we did not want to let the year pass without recognising our amazing students and all they have done this year. As such we arranged to have the students come in to do recordings of performances and create a virtual final concert. We are excited to have been able to include some of our KS3 strings, woodwind and brass players, a year 7 choir, a song in British Sign Language thanking the NHS for the last year, dancing, and solo performance from our KS4 students. We also wanted to do something special for our exiting year 11 students and commemorate their time with us at Smithdon and the work they have done in the performing arts department. Luckily we were able to invite them back to school for a day and make a special showcase of them and their skill.
The Performing Arts Department was fortunate to purchase a new camera this year, so we were able to take the students off timetable on July 8th and record all of their performances in the drama studio. We would like to thank all the peripatetic music teachers who helped students prepare for their performances, the staff who helped with preparing the students and with the recording and most importantly the students who preformed. We hope you enjoy watching our virtual concert, and we are hopeful and excited to welcome you back to Smithdon next year for a live concert.
