And the winner is….!
The campus talent show is a timeless ORA tradition, and this week the students at Yarnton Manor showed us their impressive talents in a show packed full of interesting and unusual talents.
The event was hosted by French student, Max, in the splendid gardens overlooking the Manor where the students have spent the past two weeks learning and studying hard. It was great to see the students being creative and expressive in their own way, and enjoying the experience together.
The students are certainly a musical bunch, with Ayushi, Paula Katrina and Aubrey beautifully playing the cello and singing the cup song together, Kelly singing while playing ukulele wonderfully, and Ayushi splendidly playing the piano. In terms of dancing, Paula Katrina wowed the audience with her tap dancing and Aiko showed off her very impressive rhythmic gymnastics. At the end of the show, a unanimous decision was made through a group vote to award Aiko the winner of the Yarnton Manor 2018 Talent Show- congratulations Aiko!
The whole evening was a delight for the students and staff at Yanton Manor, with fantastic performances all-round, providing an evening of wonderful entertainment and unforgettable moments.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! Yesterday, students had the unique opportunity to go on a day trip to London to explore the city, and see the musical production of Matilda at the West End- which they thoroughly enjoyed. The excursion to London also gave the students the chance to have free time to wander around the UK’s culturally thriving capital, a place most of the students had never visited before.
This afternoon marks the end of the intense 2 week programme with the Yarnton Manor graduation ceremony. Students have been working extra hard and putting a lot of effort into their final assignments, projects and presentations for their chosen subjects, ready to receive their graduation certificate and well-earned graduation party. We’ll be posting photos and highlights of the event on here, as well as announcing the winners of the Best Effort and Highest Attainment prizes for the whole programme, so be sure to keep your eyes out!
