New Lip Sync format a great success

Wendy Fleming —

June 26 saw our annual Lip Sync Competition in the College hall. This year it was part of our first Culture Week celebration and had a new format.

 The usual senior and junior competitions were held but this year we added a House competition and a staff versus students challenge.

Our judges were Mrs Pentecost, Geoff Dick and, filling in at the last moment, Micaela Fleming, (ex Arts Captain from 2016). Emcees were Zen Carter and d’Artagnan Ruegg who did a great job of keeping the night flowing. The junior competition was won by Austin Millar with his “Greatest Showman” lipsync, with second place to class mate Lily Crowley and third place to duo Ella Bullot and Jasmine Williams.

The senior competition was extremely strong with first place going to the “Jackson 8” team consisting of Jack Davison, Lucas Brydon, Otis Burrell-Ellery, Zen Carter, Jake Hannah, Ben Douglas, Ethan Fraser and Pawan Kumar. “Cell Block Tango” followed in second place. Team members were Ethan Clarke, Michael Gilliver, Jackson Christie, Brecon Cameron, Phoebe Robertson, Zaria Rainbird and Monika Ross. The placings finished with a third equal being awarded to “TC Kids”, (Lauryn Glubb, Trinity Nikora, Julia Knochelmann and Anna-Lucia Wendt) and “The Battle of York Town”, (Jonathan Taylor, Michael Gilliver, William Geary, Cole Clement and Mac Willacy).

The House competition was won by MacMillan, with Gledstanes coming second, Mulgan third and Stewart fourth.

The staff versus students challenge was a resounding win to the students.

This was a highly entertaining night with a very supportive audience and great fun was had by all. Well done to the Arts Committee for another successful event.
