Seaford College Prep School enjoyed a thrilling afternoon during their annual House Music Competition on Tuesday. The Competition started with the two Houses, Norwood and Springfield, singing songs by Queen. Norwood performed ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’ and Springfield sang ‘We Are The Champions’. Both were performed to thunderous applause from the audience of parents and children.
There were both individual and ensemble performances during the rest of the afternoon. Bertie Cripps in Year 3, who played ‘Stranger on the Shore’ on clarinet to win his category, said, “I was really nervous, but my friends helped me a lot”. Ellie Clark sang ‘Radioactive’ by Imagine Dragons in the Year 5 and 6 category and Rafe Nisbett brought the house down with his fabulous drum rendition of ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ by Queen.
The two youngest members of the school Rhys Hodder and Seb Grantham-Smith were on fine form with their version of ‘Everything is Awesome’ from the Lego movie. Rhys said he “loved it when we did our break dancing and everyone clapped and cheered”.
The judges thought that the afternoon had been a huge success and all the children had performed and behaved brilliantly. Mr Rees, Headmaster of the Prep School said that he was very impressed with the performances and the courage that it took to stand up and sing or play in front of the whole school.
After much deliberation and consideration by the judges, Norwood were declared overall House winners and Patch Joynson the winner of the individual competition.
