PERFORMERS took to the stage to show that their school really has got talent.

Pupils from Carr Green Junior School, Rastrick, had their moment in the spotlight with their spectacular show ‘Carr Green’s Got Talent’.

Sixteen acts made it through to the grand final and performed their acts in front of 150 parents and teachers.

Each act aimed to impress the judging panel of Juliette Craven and Mr Paul Mashinter, who were also responsible for organising the show.

Mrs Craven said: “The night was a tremendous success and hugely enjoyable.

“The judges had a difficult task in choosing an outright winner as everyone who tok part was absolutely amazing!”

Head teacher Lesley Bowyer was compere for the evening as dancers, musicians, gymnasts, sign language demonstrators and comedy acts all wowed the audience.

The judges eventually crowned Jack Fitt as the overall winner after his performance of Take That’s ‘The Greatest Day’. He received the prestigious Carr Green’s Got Talent 2011 trophy while each of the runners-up received a certificate and a medal.

Mrs Bowyer said heats held in class played an important role towards the event’s success.

“Every child was able to get involved. Plucking up the courage to take part helps to build their confidence,” she said. “A teacher said one of the girls in the final wouldn’t have dreamed of doing something like this last year.

“All the performers coped very well with the pressure and were very supportive towards one another as some had to wait a long time before they performed. All were winners on the night.”
