Freya wins schol­ar­ship

Rutherglen Reformer - - Health Matters - Jonathan Ged­des

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.
