A SCOTS musical duo hit the right note with pupils from a Port Glasgow school as they visited to deliver a lesson with a difference. 

Stevie and Al Jukes, best known as Saint Phnx, made a guest tour appearance at St Francis' Primary to take the kids through their 'Happy Place' workshop. 

The musical duo penned the song of the same name after their dad sadly passed away in 2021. 

Stevie and Al now travel to schools to share their experiences and lead youngsters through an interactive workshop which helps them learn how to deal with difficult feelings and emotions.

Stevie says the youngsters at St Francis' were 'brilliant' as they were great listeners and enjoyed taking part in all the activities.

He told the Tele: "After we released Happy Place we had a lot of schools contacting us telling us how much they loved the song. 

"We wanted to give something back and spread the message of the music. 

"It's really taken off.

"We didn't expect the song to have such a positive effect."

Greenock Telegraph:
The band have visited 23 schools so far and they plan to travel to 200 across Scotland in 2024. 

Stevie and Al speak to youngsters about their experiences as a band touring with chart star Lewis Capaldi, and about how writing songs helps to express feelings. 

The boys and girls at St Francis' also took part in interactive storytelling and exercises led by the pair. 

Greenock Telegraph:
The workshop rounded off with the youngsters encouraged to put any of their fears away into a 'worry box', before everyone sang Happy Place together at the end. 

St Francis P6/5 teacher Paula McDonald said the boys and girls really enjoyed the day. 

She added: "It was a fantastic way to engage the children, and the pupils took a lot of valuable experiences from it. 

"They loved singing along to Happy Place and sharing stories of their own happy places with each other."
