ADJUDICATORS were singing the praises of a Greenock school after its young people picked up silverware at the Inverclyde Music Festival.

Pitch perfect performers from St Patrick's Primary made sure their voices were heard at the Greenock Town Hall competition.

The P1 and P2 choirs were joint winners at the event while the P4 choir won in their category, just one point ahead of the school's P3 group.

Geraldine Ogilby, deputy head teacher, said: "Our children were fabulous.

"They love singing and I think it's very important that they get the chance to perform.

"I can still remember performing at the festival when I was a child, singing and playing the recorder.

"This will give them lifelong memories, confidence and a sense of achievement."

Five-year-old Caoimhe Harrington, who is in P1, loved performing at the festival.

She said: "I was a bit scared but when we started singing, I felt happy because my gran was there.

"I felt so excited when we won."

Nieve McKay relished being part of the P4 choir.

The eight-year-old said: "As soon as we got on the stage we were really excited.

"When they announced that we won, I felt like I was going to scream in front of the whole hall."

The school is keen to thank Gemma Mclean, P7 teacher, who helped the children prepare for the festival.
