Holme-on-Spalding Moor Primary School has won a string of awards earning national recognition following their performance at this year’s Rock Challenge competition.

After winning various sub-awards at the East Riding leg of the competition, the school has gone on to achieve two national awards, for video performance and press coverage.

60 pupils from the school took part in the performance entitled ‘Traditionally Techno’, which is all about modern and traditional toys.

Headteacher Mark Alston, said: “This has really put the school on the map.

“One of the most pleasing points is that it was a community effort, various fundraisers enabled us to buy costumes and set.”

After winning the East Riding round of the competition at Bridlington, the school went on to come fourth in the regional finals.

Gemma Goodall, music coordinator at the school, said: “It was fantastic. Thank you to everyone involved and everyone who supported what we did, I’m sure we’ll look into taking part again.”
