TALENTED youngsters demonstrated their skills at an end-of-year show in Southwick.

Year-three teacher Nick Owen organised the show, which saw the return of an old school tradition.

Val Blackner, from the school, explained: “We have done them in the past, when the school was Manor Hall, but we have not had one for a long time.

“Pupils in years three to six were invited to audition and various acts were chosen. They performed to the rest of the school.”

There was a variety of entertainment, including a unicycle, juggling with diabolos, music and dancing.

Mrs Blackner added: “It was very popular and a fun afternoon. Hopefully, we will do it again next year.”

Pupils also had a non-uniform day last Monday, to raise money for Shoreham RNLI.

The school wanted to support the lifeboat charity because one of the teachers is a member. Roland Farrar is on the Brighton RNLI lifeboat crew, based at Brighton Marina.

Mrs Blackner said: “It is a local cause and a good local charity.”

Together with a cake sale, the day raised just over £563 was raised.
