A view from Japan.... from the recent trip involving students from McRoberts.  Kakehashi 2018 was an amazing experience for all involved.  Generously sponsored by the Japanese government, our students were given an opportunity of a lifetime.

McRoberts Idol 2018


Though many more talented students auditioned, today it was down to the final 3.  Eight amazing students, braved a full gymnasium and sang their hearts out.  It was a truly special day.  The only people who may not have enjoyed the event were the judges who had to narrow this talent pool down to three finalists who will perform for the student vote and hope to be crown McRoberts Idol 2018 next week. Congratulations to all of the truly spectacular talented students who performed today.
