Harrow’s Got Talent 2012

THE stars of tomorrow showed off their skills in front of a packed crowd for charity at Harrow’s Got Talent.

Dancers, musicians, magicians and a promising footballer got the chance to showcase their talent after students at the Edgware-based Sai School Harrow organised the show.

Year nine pupils at the voluntary-run school organised everything from ticket sales to ushering on the day after receiving a special presentation from the charity WaterAid.

Drijen Shah, who teaches the year nine group alongside Sarita Menon, both of whom helped organise the day, said: “The students really wanted to do something for the charity and make a difference, and they worked really hard to put it together. I was absolutely thrilled with how it all went and it was a really valuable experience for all of them which will hopefully be useful for them in the future.

“The calibre of talent was really high and it just goes to show that there is so much hidden talent right under our noses in Harrow.”

Having been whittled down to 14 acts, Harrow’s stars aged between seven and 22 took to the stage at Stanburn School in Abercorn Road, Stanmore, on Saturday.

After judges selected their three favourite acts, members of the audience declared Hinal Tanna and Sonal Gandhi the winners after their performance to a Bollywood dance hit.

More than £1,600 has been raised for WaterAid, an international non-governmental organisation which aims to improve access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities.
