Ark Pioneer Academy definitely has talent!

Monday 25 January 2021

At the end of the Autumn term, we hosted our second (and first virtual) 'Ark Pioneer's Got Talent!'.  A huge number of our year 7 and 8s put themselves forward for audition, displaying the wide range of amazing talent our students have.  The auditions featured acts including dance, comedy and magic, with all performances wowing the crowd and making it a tough decision to decide who was going through to the final.

The line up for the final featured:

  • Jasmine, Jessica, Jood, Pristine and Beatrice in Year 7, performing a dance/gymnatics routine
  • Efe in Year 8 playing the piano
  • Caylie in Year 8, singing a song (a song she wrote herself) and playing the piano
  • Zach and Dominik in Year 7, each performing a magic trick
  • Arian in Year 7, performing a street dance/pop n'lock routine
  • Rocco in Year 8, who edited his own music video featuring himself singing, playing guitar, bass and keyboard
  • Naomi in Year 7, singing (a song she wrote herself) and playing the piano

The judges included our Principal, Ms Ryan, and two of our governors, who were hugely impressed with the very high standard from all performers, leaving them with an even tougher job on their hands to decide on a winner!  After much deliberation, Naomi won first place with her beautifully sung original song, and Rocco was a close runner up with his ambitious performance and excellent video editing skills.


A huge congratulations to all our wonderful students who took part!  You have proven that even during the toughest of times, nothing can stop creativity and talent! Ark Pioneer Academy definitely has talent!
