"Our School's got Talent"

Missy's school SRC recently conducted a competition called "Our School's got Talent" where students could perform anything they like. Performance heats were held over Term 2 and the Grand Final was held last week.
Of course any sort of performing was up Missys alley. So Missy and her friend put a dance together to Miley Cyrus's "Hoedown" they performed wonderfully in the heat to win a spot thru to the Grand Final.
The Grand Final had so much excitement surrounding it, as it was attended by the entire school and many parents, as it was held during our open day for Education Week. The girls had been practicing their dance moves during their lunch breaks with Miss H who does a wonderful job with all the extra curriculum stuff. Missy and her friend recruited another member to the dance group and they throw on the wigs and plenty of bling and took to the stage full of excitment and confidence and danced away to "Crazy" by Hannah Montana. Missy danced in her walker and I was so proud of her confidence to have a go.
Once the performances were over and an assembly was gathered, the results were read out, you could tell from Missy's face that she had no doubts that their act would be winning. Well...... as no places were given just 4 winners in the Junior & Senior Section... they read out three winners in the Junior and Missy's face had started to transformed to a worried look......and then the 4th winner was the "Crazy girls"... well she and her friends took off out the front, jumping out of their skin and smiles that couldn't be bigger.
Fun all around...
