Ten high schools came together on Saturday 19 August to compete in the annual, explosive musical competition High School Jam at Grand West. The event aims to bring schools and communities  together through their mutual love for music, all whilst giving teenagers the opportunity to perform in a professional setting with high quality sound equipment and sponsored prizes awarded to a myriad of individuals based on exceptional performances and talent.

The bands were met with an enthusiastic arena filled with family, friends and most importantly, Wynberg supporters. The combined Wynberg Girls’ and Wynberg Boys’ Jazz Band delivered a varied set list of stripped down love ballads, punchy pop numbers and foot tapping seventies classics, providing entertainment for audiences of all ages.

Joining the band on stage, the Wynberg Girls’ dancers delivered energetic routines, adding to the overall slick nature and high production value of the performance. Whilst Wynberg was not awarded the winning school prize, they performed extremely well, and Gita Urion was singled out by the judges for her outstanding dancing, and won the “Female – Outstanding Dancer” award.

We are very proud to all our performers this weekend.
