Wild times at Lanesend!

Last night the crowd went wild as Lanesend Primary performed ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ at J Rock 2016. Our entry was kindly sponsored by Wightfibre, Island Facility Services and the Cowes Charity Committee.

86 children from Years 3 to 6 participated in the event, having come 3rd last year, which was the first time the school had been placed, the team were determined to go bigger. The night exceeded all expectations when the awards were announced.

The evening really did go wild when the final award of the night was announced and Lanesend Primary were awarded first place. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, with families, children and staff completely stunned and overwhelmed with the success.
