The jungle came to life in Landulph Memorial Hall before Christmas, when the children of Landulph School performed The Jungle Book, hailed unanimously as the school’s best show in recent history!

The whole school was involved, with as many children as possible on the stage throughout; children became trees, rocks and flowers as well as many jungle animals, creating a wonderful living backdrop behind the main action. The individual performances of particular characters astounded the audience with their maturity, stage presence and clarity. Singing all the well-known, popular songs with abundant enthusiasm, the children clearly enjoyed entertaining their appreciative audience.

Mrs Best, the headteacher, thanked the children and staff, particularly noting their exceptional team work and camaraderie, which led to the success of this year’s show. Mr Buckley, CEO of SMART was in the audience for the evening performance and was taken aback by the children’s talent, in particular how each child had the chance to be the star of the show.

Throughout 2017, the children of Landulph School have had countless opportunities to expand their learning across an exciting varied curriculum, including sport, creative arts, outdoor learning, inter school activities and trips as far afield as London! The show was a fitting end to such a successful year!
