Newhaven's King's Park Campus Hosts First Autism's Got Talent Show

Last Week Anna was invited to Newhaven’s King’s Park Campus for their first school Autism’s got Talent. Families came together to support 15 autistic performers from 4 local schools.
There were singers, dancers, a keyboard player, drummer, reciting from the Koran and even a dead weight lifting act!
The first performer we were honoured to listen to the talented Ollie Kelly who recently has graduated from the Brit School and is going to study jazz at Trinity Laban next year. Ollie plays in a number of bands including Ramfunk, Xanadu, Flytrap and The Youthsayers.
The last act was Samir. Samir was representing the Tramshed. 
Tramshed are a performing arts group that provide programmes for young people and adults with learning differences. Anna was asked to give certificates and trophies to all the performers alongside the Headteacher.
Anna has been invited back next year.

The atmosphere was electric and Anna was emailed by Kathy Mackinnon the Pastoral HLTA who coordinated the event that students enjoyed the evening so much they were singing around the school the following day.
