Performing arts students at Thurston Community College have created an inspirational anthem for the Suffolk School Games after winning a competition.

The song, Win the Games, is to be recorded in a studio and played at the games’ opening ceremony at the athletics track at Bury St Edmunds Leisure Centre on July 10.

The song was created by Year 12 students Alfie Henwood, Alex Monk, Lucy Bertram, Maya Lindberg, Max Adnett, Zoe Rogers and Callum Hurst.

It was chosen by a panel of judges including representatives from Suffolk County Council Music Services, Suffolk Sport and BBC Radio Suffolk.

Claire Hollocks, the college’s head of music, said: “The project allowed students to work collaboratively as a song-writing team, applying techniques we had used and discussed in lessons, but also working to a tight deadline and responding to a specific brief.”
