The Roslyn School dance on the last day of term.
Children at a school in Palmerston North spent the day swinging to celebrate the end of a busy period of learning.
Roslyn School hosted Rozstock ’22 on Friday, a fun, music-themed day to celebrate the learning and hard work the children had done during term.
Children and teachers dressed up for the occasion, with personalities dressed as Freddie Mercury and the music app Spotify.
Epic Music Academy, which offers music lessons to schools in Palmerston North, put on a show for the kids with everyone in the school hall and dancing.
Children also took part in performances, with the Roslyn School Band putting on a show during the day.

Students Laite Fanongaaloa, 13, and Sontel Liuvaie, 13, were part of the group and Sontel said they mainly performed songs by Bruno Mars.
Laite played electric guitar and bass, and Sontel sang and played acoustic guitar, but there were nine members in the band, including a violinist and a pianist.
They already knew the songs but had done some preparation for the performance, Laite said.
“It was amazing. It was easy to play in front of a small crowd.
Sontel said it was great to share music with the school.
Professor Carl Roberts said the event was a good way to celebrate the end of what had been a busy term.
A group from Freyberg High School also came to the school to teach music.
