Freya wins scholarship
A talented Cambuslang youngster has won a scholarship with a stage school.
Freya McCormack of Newton Farm won the prize with Razzamataz, who are based in Newton Mearns and Bearsden.
As a network Razzamataz, who are run by Cambuslang mum of two Lyndsey Loughery and her friend Louise McHendry, gives away up to £26,000 in scholarships for students through an audition process.
The scholarship now means Freya will have a year’s free tuition.
Freya said: “I am so happy to win this award it makes me so proud and I just love being at Razz.”
Freya’s mum Carrie McCormack was understandably delighted at her daughter’s success.
She said: “I am extremely proud of this achievement.
“Throughout her time at Razz, I have watched her skills and confidence develop and winning this scholarship will further enhance her confidence in her own abilities.
“She has transformed from a wee girl who would not perform in front of anyone to a little star in my eyes.
“Freya loves going to Razz and has made lots of friends.
“Razz has enriched her social life and given her excellent life experiences.
“I am looking forward to what comes next for Freya.
Lyndsey Loughery has been running the school for the past year, and feels the eightyear-old is a star in the making.
She added: “Freya is a wee star, she has a very natural singing talent but over the last year we have watched her build confidence and through the encouragement of the teaching staff at Razz we have seen her overcome her shyness to perform on stage.
“She recently performed as Annie in our summer showcase at Eastwood theatre and was amazing!”
The school teaches youngsters dance, drama & singing.
