House Shout 2022
On 13th October Seymour, Chichester, Hunt and Merlin assembled in the Wykeham Hall for another excellent House event: the House Shout. An event for the history books, House Shout is a community singing competition between Pre-Prep and Prep Houses.
All pupils came together this year for an afternoon of musical fun. Pupils were judged on various elements of their performance including unity and musicality. Seymour was first up. Students took to the stage, starting the afternoon with a brilliant rendition of Ho Hey by the Lumineers. Next up came Hunt with That’s What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction accompanied by some excellent synchronised dance moves.
Merlin, eager to perform their song, On Top of The World by the Lumineers, went next, followed by an impressive rendition of Home by Phillip Phillips from Chichester. Once the performances were finished, and after some hard deliberation by our judges, Head of Prep, Mrs. Eaton-Jones, Director of Music, Mr. Watkins and music teacher Mr. Chew, a decision was made.
In fourth place was Merlin. Seymour came third. Hunt won a close second, however Chichester took first place, and will therefore sing at the Academic Decathlon on Saturday, a fitting prize for the winners. Congratulations to all who sang, it was a truly excellent series of performances.
