Paigey Cakey Performs For Year 9

Paigey Cakey Performs For Year 9

On 18th July the whole of year 9 were treated to a special musical treat in the form of Actor/rapper/ singer Paigey Cakey.

Paigey hails from East London and is a rising star of the music and acting world appearing at music festivals across the world and featuring in several films and BBC dramas. She performed two tracks for Year 9 in the Waterside Theatre and then pupils asked her questions about her life, influences and rise to fame. She was really candid and open with the year group even allowing selfies with virtually the whole of the year group at the end of the session.

During period 6 all the pupils involved in our Urban Development project this year had the unique opportunity to perform their tracks live for her and get feedback. She said she really 'liked the message of the songs' and that the pupils 'had great voices'!  It was pretty nerve racking to perform in front of a famous artist, but the Bow pupils put nerves behind them and gained another valuable musical and social experience.

Well done on the fantastic work so far …. keep up the great work: Taeilan-Marie Letman, Ella Price, Bersy Selam, Monika John-Lewis, Poppy Jenkins, Laura Baublyte, Eva Rezeau.
