Eurovision Song Contest!

To help celebrate the European Day of Languages, one of the many activities in the school on Friday 26 September was a “Eurovision Song Contest” held in the school library. Four class acts, Ross Cumming, Lori Davidson, Kaitlin Baker and Callum McLeod, sang one song each, and provided superb entertainment in doing so. Ross emerged as the winner, singing A-Ha’s “Take on Me”. Thanks go the judges, Mrs Watson, Miss McPhail, Mr Davidson and Mr MacWhirter for their comments, scores and colourful costumes. Thanks also to Mr Clark for being Master of Ceremonies and ensuring that it all went with a swing. Thank you also to Mr Baker and the Baker boys and girls for a great finale, singing “She Loves You” by the Beatles in German. and to all the pupils and staff who came along and supported the performers. Also a huge thank you to Mrs Toonen and Ms Lyall for organising the entire event.
