Weston Hills youngster Cam through to national jokes final
A six-year-old Weston Hills Primary School pupil is through to the final of a national jokes competition.
Cam Stanley was the Weston Hills winner of the annual 'Voice Box Joke Competition' for primary schools back in November.
Voice Box is organised by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists in partnership with NAHT (National Association of Head Teachers.)
All mainstream and specialist primary schools were invited to hold competitions and the teachers and pupils at Weston Hills judged Cam's as the best, which meant he was entered into the national competition.
- It was...
- Q: How do you make a tissue dance?
- A: You put a little boogey in it!
In January Cam received a letter telling him he was one of just a few out of more than 5,000 who had made it through to the finals. He was invited to Portcullis House, Westminster in Londonin May to perform his joke – but unfortunately the event was called off because of coronavirus.
So organisers have now organised a virtual Voice Box finals.Cam has sent in a video of his joke for a panel of judges to review and a winner and two runners-up will be chosen and announced in September.
Interim head teacher Sonya Ely said: "We have our fingers crossed and are wishing Cam the best of luck."
