Copyright: Archant 2018
Youngsters at a special needs school enjoyed live music and other activities at an annual festival.
Sidestrand Hall School’s fourth Strand Fest on Friday, June 29 had a jungle theme.
Headteacher Sarah Young said: “All our pupils have complex needs and they don’t always get opportunities like this outside of school.
“They absolutely love this day every year and it gives them the freedom to join in at whatever level they want to.
“Each year the event has grown and we hope more schools will join us next year. It takes quite a bit of organising and although loads of staff help, thanks must go to the event’s main man Benjie Smith.”
The school field was a mass of colour with bunting and flags and the pupils sang and danced accompanied by the staff band, joined by 70 visitors. The Cromer Junior School Choir also sang and Churchill Park School, King’s Lynn sent drummers.
