Faith Pugh, student council officer, was the MC for the event and she said, “This was the first time I’ve hosted a big event. I was nervous at first but really pleased how well it went.”
Dan Blasczyk, student enrichment lead, said, “The students worked extremely hard to organise this gig and it was nice to see the reaction of students in attendance, who donated generously to a brilliant charity.”
“I think that the open mic went extremely well with a fantastic turnout, this wouldn’t have happened without the students who performed and the events organisers, Daihak Singh and Daniel B, so a huge thanks to them and also the students who supported the event!” said Manny Uppal, the student president.
