On the Thursday, 1st of April, Knox once again showed the school is full of talent. With 6 acts signed up for the show - including a very special staff act - it was a very busy lunchtime.

Knox’s Head Boy, Ally Brown, decided to start the show and set the bar to high standard. He was closely followed by Simon Simpson who showed his talented impressions of Gok Wan, Brian Blessed, Joker from Batman and Alexander from Compare the Meerkat.  All three judges, Mrs Craig, Mrs Ingham and Mr Illingworth, all enjoyed these performances. 

The next two acts were both singing acts, one a very memorable performance by Mr Dempster and Miss Morgan which the audience thoroughly enjoyed and will be remembered for some time. The next singing act was Sophie and Rowan who sang Don’t Stop Believin’ and again all 3 judges highly commended their performance.

The final singing act of the afternoon was Kaelyn Pritchard and Rebecca Cole who sang Pixie Lott’s song ‘ Mamma Do’ which the audience loved and all 3 judges thought was the best performance so far, so it would be a tough act to follow. Eilidh Mc Sporran on the piano was the final act and her performance was again of a high standard, but who did the judges feel was the best?

Mrs Ingham announced the winners:

The judges first of all highly commended all the performances but they were unanimous in their decision and the winners were Kaelyn Pritchard and Rebecca Cole.

The event raised a total of £171.40 with all the proceeds going to Radio Forth’s Cash 4 Kids appeal.
