On the 25th October, our school had their own talent contest named ‘Wrenn’s Got Talent’. There were 16 acts including singers, majorettes, tap dancers, and bands.
First off, the whole contest was introduced by two girls named Samantha and Jessica.
The judges were: Winner of Britain’s got Talent and former Wrenn pupil, from Ashleigh and Pudsey, former student Frazer McDonald and finally our very own head teacher: Mr William Thallon.
The judges picked an amazing act; a contemporary dancer, Lewis Starr, who danced to a very calm and gentle song. Whereas of the audiences winner, No One Neglect sang and played a very different song American Idiot by Green Day.
But not only that, no…the audience chose yet another contestant, Danielle, who sang a very uplifting song, and was definitely one of our favourites.
My favourite was Danielle because her voice was so powerful, and the way she was confident really improved her performance.
In my opinion, No One Neglect was the best because they all worked together very well and the song was AMAZING!

BBC News School Report gives 11-16 year-old students in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience.
Using lesson plans and materials from this website, and with support from BBC staff and partners, teachers help students develop their journalistic skills to become School Reporters.
In March, schools take part in an annual News Day, simultaneously creating video, audio and text-based news reports, and publishing them on a school website, to which the BBC aims to link.

Wrenn School: Stitch-Up Cancer
1 in 8 women are diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their lifetime. Shocking hey? Statistics like this show that we need to raise more awareness and money for not just breast cancer but for the whole cause. Last year Wrenn School started a tapestry that later on will be passed through the country, so that everyone can get involved with Stitch-Up Cancer.
Stitch-Up Cancer is a large tapestry of the Wellingborough Coat Of Arms and on the 18th June 2013 the first stitch was stitched into the Tapestry. Lots have people have taken part including staff, students and teachers at the school, the mayor and even Ashleigh and Pudsey have done their bit! Many people are involved in this project as Cancer awareness is a world-wide issue that everyone should know about.
To be a part of this project all you need to do is pay 50p to play your part and help reach our goal of £30,000. The Mayor is fully behind us as are Cancer Research. We will be the first town to do this event and Cancer research is hoping to take this idea all over the country.
So let’s do it together! Let’s Stitch up Cancer. For good.
