After a competitive audition stage, finalists performed solos in front of an audience of parents and community members.

Finalists had a couple of weeks to prepare their solo performances with help from Mrs Donaldson and Mrs Ramsay. There were also performances from the P1-P7 school choir and the Vocal Group.

On the night, all children performed to the high standard we have come to expect from the competition. Judges, Nicky Martin, Jamesie Strachan, Diane Pert and Reverend James McMillan, had a tough job deciding the winners but in the end the results were as follows:

Junior singer finalists: Eden Lynch P2; Lilli Beau Keith P2; Tyler McLean P2; Phoebe Thurgood P2; junior runner up- Lily Campbell P2; junior winner- Milly Brown P3.

Instrumentalists- runner up- Josh Bruce Bagpipes P5; runner up- Grace Duncan Piano P5; winner- Julie Hannah Guitar & Vocals P6.

Senior singer finalists- Lara Lee Gray P5; Brooke McLean P7; Kathryn Wilson P7; Grace Johnston P6; Shannon Davidson P5; Skye Ure P5; senior runner-up- Aimee Clark P5; senior winner- Nikola Kubryn P7.

Overall the night was 
another great success and all pupils gained valuable performance experience.

The school is now working towards its school show, ‘Getting to Know the Sound of Music’ which has a strong main cast and a hard working chorus.

The children have been working with Miss Cow, Mrs Donaldson and Mrs Ramsay to perfect their lines, acting and singing.

Children have also been working on set design with Ms Stephen and Miss Sutherland and costumes and props are well underway with Mrs Buchan and Mrs Davidson with help from the Peterhead Panto.

The show will be performed in the school hall on Tuesday, July 3 at 1.30pm and Wednesday, July 4 at 6.30pm.

It will be a fantastic way to finish another great musical year at Dales Park School.
