Lancing Prep Worthing pupils shine at Music and Arts Festival

Our pupils performed exceptionally well at this year’s Worthing Music and Arts Festival and came away with impressive top three places in many of the Drama and Reading categories. The school believes that the opportunity to speak in public helps pupils to develop an important skill for life and the competition was an exciting and rewarding experience for all the pupils who took part and represented the school so well.

What to Wear?

In the morning,
I open my wardrobe and think,
What shall I wear today?

I will wear horror, despair, pain,
Black and crimson in a gloomy tunic,
To advise others to stay away.

I will wear Joy, excitement, thrill,
Lemon yellow and gold in a quirky skirt,
To greet anyone I pass.

I will wear sadness, heartache, disappointment,
Inky blue and grey in a pair of boots,
To request a hug from a friend or two.

I will wear outrage, anger, fury,
Fiery ginger and bold orange in a giant fleece,
To challenge the toughest person.
