A DIVERSE range of talent was on show at St James’ Primary School in Whiteabbey on Thursday, May 24.

Pupils from Foundation Stage to Key Stage 2 showcased an array of skills during the annual St James’ Got Talent competition.

Performers were auditioned by a panel of Year 7 pupils, assisted by their teacher, Mr Nolan, before the successful acts took part in three shows - one in the morning for neighbouring King’s Park Primary School, a performance for the pupils and staff of St James’ PS, and a final show in the evening for family and friends with a special panel of judges.

The wonderful talent displayed included singing, dancing, poetry, comedy and instrumental performances. Even some teachers from St James’ made an appearance on stage.

The evening performance, which was a great success, was expertly hosted by two Year 7 pupils, Conor O’Brien and Eoghan O’Hara - St James’s own ‘Ant and Dec’.

The winner of the talent show was Conor Nugent, who mesmerised the audience with his beautiful singing voice. Second place went to the talented Aiden Doyle, who performed a medley of tunes on his tin whistle and third place went to Jennah Fulton for her skilful combination of hula hooping and dancing.
