Kyaisha wins Bangalow Idol
Organised by teacher Lin Culbert, this year’s ‘Idol’ attracted many aspiring student performers, with the final 12 selected after a rigorous audition process.
They played guitar or keyboard, sang, or danced in front of family members, teachers, a trio of discerning judges and the entire school population, at a special assembly at the school on Friday afternoon.
The judges awarded Year 6 student Kyaisha Ellbourn with a well-deserved win for a sensational hoop-dance routine.
Year 4 student Grace Hughes was runner-up for a wonderful singing and piano performance of one of her own compositions and the encouragement award went to Riley Deacon from Year 6 for a great guitar performance of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway to Heaven’.
MC for the afternoon was Year 4 student Louis Spiteri, who was so adept behind the microphone that he warranted a place in the finals himself.
