A YEAR six leavers' performance of The Lion King was a roaring success at Ashcombe Primary School.

Students helped make scenery and costumes for the performance on July 17, which featured all the classic songs from the musical, but had its own Ashcombe spin.

Teacher Tina Langston said: “We always do something at the end of the year, whether a long assembly to present to the children’s parents. We thought we would do something a little extra and bring a bit of a West End touch to things.

“We wrote our own version of the musical and did a parade through the audience, with giant elephants and all the animals, the children really loved it and they all went off singing Hakuna Matata.”
