First year’s concert

The theme for the 2014 first year’s concert was Newtons got talent.

The show started off with a BANG! We were all very excited and nervous as the line-up forced us to step out of our comfort zones.

Our first performance was an act we called “the single ladies” and was performed by all the first year guys. Never would they have imagined themselves in 10cm mini skirts’, pink wigs and stilettos!

The audience thoroughly enjoyed the act and so did the performers.

Next up we was “Gatvol/dancing big butts” which was a parody of Miley Cyrus’ wrecking ball. The combination of these two performances was hilarious and the crowd went wild. The above two performances set an amazing tone for the rest of the show.

Next on our line-up was the “Leeuloop” which took the show to a whole new level of interesting. Mixed reactions were observed from the crowd, with some shrugging and some turning red in the face. This performance was well received.

Then we had a magic trick courtesy of Ntsane, which created a great atmosphere of unity at the show.

The finale…was called “The cup song” which started very well and is now topping the YouTube charts. Please go have a look.

The first year’s concert was exciting and extremely fun. Very stressful at first, but most importantly an amazing team building exercise for the first years and a good platform for the first years to socialize with the Newtons family.

I must congratulate the first year’s team: Daniel, Doreen, Eric, Luzanne, Nadia, Sharidon, Siseko, Tineke and Reatile; without you guys the concert would not have been a success. Thank you!
