We certainly have some talented children at Crossgates! Over 50 acts auditioned, and had to get through Round 1 and Boot Camp - our School Council were ruthless at choosing the 18 finalists. Our celebrity judges of Kylie Thurstans, Louis McGee and Cheryl Vermicelli-Bolton had a difficult job deciding the winners, with the overall 1st prize going to The 3 Elsas. Well done to everyone who took part!
