Over this time away from school Rye College student Poppy, in Year 7, has self-taught herself the guitar, and has written a song called "We'll All Be Rising Up Singing".

This is part of a competition: hastingsthrives.org/enrichment/songcomp5/popular-vote/

If you could spare a few moments of your time and vote for Poppy (track number 13).

It’s a huge challenge for anyone to write a song – to dream up a melody and find the right words. On top of that, try performing your work in front of friends, family and even people you don’t know!

Well done Poppy!
