The hall of St Laurence Junior Academy in Ramsgate reverberated with the sound of electric guitars and the cheers of aspiring rockstars as Rock Kidz On Tour brought a full day of high-energy workshops on perseverance, resilience and pursuit of dreams to the school.
All staff and pupils embraced the theme, showing up dressed as rockstars for a day that blended important life lessons with the thrill of a rock concert. The Rock Kidz team brought a professional rock concert experience to the school, complete with top-notch sound and lighting equipment that added to the overall atmosphere of the event.
