Students demonstrate fantastic talents in “Search for a Star”

16th Nov 2016

Search for a Star at Strabane Academy has unearthed a phenomenal amount of talent within the school. Auditions started back in late September and students auditioned in their masses. The lucky fifteen were judged from a range of criteria including, talent ability, enthusiasm, stage presence and originality. Our guest judges, Andy Davidson of The Governors and Geraldine Cameron of The Cameron Girls were blown away with the professionalism and talent abilities of all those involved. This has given our pupils the opportunity to not only showcase themselves and their amazing abilities but also to grow personally. Of course, the show would not be complete without a special performance as the audience were caught in a time warp as staff took to the stage to dance the show to a close.
