Clerkhill School hosted a special Festival of Choirs performance by the Peterhead Cluster Schools last week.

Meethill, Clerkhill, Burnhaven and St Fergus schools all joined together to form a 160-strong choir and perform individually too.

The school hall was packed when the children began to sing the first song of the night together, Mary Poppins song ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’.

A mix of tunes were then performed by each school from the more modern Bruno Mars ‘Marry Me’ to the well known song ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ (‘Purple Heather’).

It was the first time the event had taken place, with Clerkhill forming two choirs for the occasion.

After each school performed they came together again to sing the song ‘Sing’ by Gary Barlow for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Parents and guardians enjoyed the song so much that they gave the pupils a standing ovation and asked the children to perform the song again.
