Talent for Charity!

It was lights, camera and action for Hutchie pupils this February, as The Helen and Walter Ross Assembly Hall welcomed the Annual Charity Talent Show.

The event raised an amazing £1,500 for this year's School charity NetsforLife® which empowers communities to eliminate malaria by providing life-saving prevention training and long-lasting insecticide-treated nets.

The Hollywood themed show had plenty of glamour on display, including the sharply dressed hosts, Ross Hadden, Michael Hain, Niharika Madhukar and Alexander Maxwell. The fab four (pictured right) provided some very witty repartee and kept the evening flowing smoothly.

As usual the event was filled with an array of talent, from young musicians entering the contest for the first time, to seasoned talent show performers like the S6 Band "The Oscars". There was also a staff entry from the indescribable #SquadGoals, who were a firm favourite with the audience!

Dr Greig and Miss Tomitaka had a tough job on their hands to pick a winner, but they were aided by a surprise special guest - Comedian, TV and Radio Presenter Des Clarke, who joined the judging panel for the evening.


After much debate the worthy winners (pictured above with Des) were finally announced as:

  • S1 - 3 Winner: Luna Baral S2 (Far right)
  • S4 - 6 Winner: Samantha Brodie, S5 (Second right)
  • Most Entertaining Act: Elle Crumlish and Adil Shahid, both S6
    (Far left and Centre right)
  • Best Overall Act: Ruaridh Heath, S6 (second left)

The event would not have been possible without the commitment of the Talent Show Committee and the hard work of staff organisers Miss McMonagle and Miss Munro. Our thanks also go to Des Clark for supporting such great cause and for providing the best joke of the night (you had to be there!)
