YOUNGSTERS and their families celebrated the end of a year-long project with a village parade and singing their school song.
Residents of Winterton joined in the event to mark the culmination of the project with Creative Partnerships Norfolk.
The Winterton School Song was written and composed by children in years 5 and 6 under the guidance of professional musician Kit Cecconi, and there was a performance of the year 1 and 2's Toad Song and other musical items from the youngest children. Year 3 and 4 children carried flags and banners depicting significant Winterton symbols and images helping to make the parade a fantastic spectacle on a summer's evening.
The event concluded with an address from the Mayor and Mayoress of Great Yarmouth, Michael and Paula Jeal who took a great interest in a living willow sculpture, designed and made by the older children with the expert help of environmental artist, Kate Munro.

“The project has been great for getting the children to work together and having the help of professional artists, Kit and Kate, has given us more scope for extending the children's learning in different ways."
