Talented students from a Grantham school scooped six awards at a colourful rock music dance event.

More than 70 students from Walton High School for Girls took part in the northern area Rock Challenge event at The Meres Centre, alongside youngsters from five other secondary schools from Lincolnshire and Newark.

And after a day of intensive rehearsals and performance, the Walton girls, led by dance teacher Amy Puttergill, came away with awards for costumes, set design, stage crew, performance, choreography and spirit of the challenge.

The original Walton performance was based on a family holiday centre, Waltins, and the girls captured a vintage style by dressing in polka dot skirts.

Miss Puttergill said: “All the students involved represented the school well and should be proud.”

Younger pupils from Grantham’s Huntingtower and St Mary’s primary Schools also took part in the challenge, which promotes healthy life choices among teams working for several weeks to create a dance drama with their own choreography, choice of music, sets and costumes.
