A budding young performing arts student from Stagecoach Halifax has been chosen out of hundreds of applicants to feature on an episode of CBBC’s The Dog Ate My Homework.
Young performer Aron will feature on the popular children’s panel show, which presents two teams, each featuring two celebrities and a child who compete against each other in ‘a mischievous mix of tongue-in-cheek comedy, off-the-wall questions and slapstick challenges’.

On seeing an advert for the audition, the Principal of Stagecoach Halifax, Oleksandra Antonova, put Aron forward for the show.
Oleksandra, who has extensive experience teaching music, including being Head of Music at Kiev Performing Art School, has watched Aron grow in confidence while attending Stagecoach classes, and realised that his outgoing and bubbly disposition would make him a perfect contender for the show.
Aron, aged nine, was chosen following a highly competitive selection process, competing against 400 other contestants for a slot on the show.
On discovering that he had been successful at the audition stage, Aron travelled to Glasgow in December for filming.
