Lip Sync Battle
This year, on Wednesday, 8th June, the Physical Education department showcased student skills in a ‘Lip Sync Battle.’ As our charismatic hosts, Olivia Choi and David Zheng, explained at the beginning of the show, ‘lip-sync’ is a simple concept. A team of students choregraphed, rehearsed and performed a dance, whilst inviting a teacher to ‘sing’ the lyrics. Yes, a simple concept. But one that- without a doubt- it was taken to a high standard.
