There's Magic In The Library at King's High School

Meet Brendan who is a year 10 student at King's.  He is a quiet and unassuming young man but if you dig a little deeper you find that Brendan has a wonderful talent, he can entertain huge groups of students and amaze them with his skills.   Brendan is a magician.  He draws a crowd every lunchtime at the moment as people gather around to watch him.  When Brendan is in the library, you can guarantee that the numbers in here will go up enormously.  His quiet manner meant that most people didn't know about his magic until recently.  In the photo above you can see him entertaining the library regulars.   At one point last week the entire Senior Management Team were standing watching amazed.  Cool isn't it!
