WELL versed children 'brewed up' some success in the latest round of the Inverclyde Music Festival.

Six teams of talented school pupils proved everyone's cup of tea when they each recited the poem 'teabag' in the group verse competition for P1-4.

The adjudicator praised the children for having the confidence to stand up on the stage at the town hall especially the P3 children from St Columba's Junior School who achieved first in class.

It was party time for the P1 team from Gourock Primary who were second.

Gillian Annetts, a drama teacher at St Columba's School, said her pupils had worked very hard on their routine.

She said: "I'm delighted for them.

"This is the first year they have entered, so it's a completely new experience for them.

"They have have enjoyed coming along and watching all the other schools too.

"It's great for their confidence."

The little ones from P1 at Gourock Primary School could not wipe the smiles off their faces after being announced as the runners up.

Class teacher Sandra Meechan described them as a 'credit to the school and their families'.

She added: "I'm very proud of them.

"They have been working for it in short bursts and they have really enjoyed it.

"A lot of them were nervous when they went onto the stage but when they started, they felt good."

The other teams who put on impressive performances were the Gourock Primary School P2, 3/2 and P3 teams as well as St Ninian's Primary 4/5.
