Pupils Wannabe stars at con­cert

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News -

Girl power was alive and well at Air­drie Academy as the Spice Girls warmed up for their re­union tour this sum­mer by putting in an ap­pear­ance at the school.

It may not have ac­tu­ally been Sporty, Scary, Posh, Baby and Gin­ger them­selves, but the school’s own ver­sion of the iconic pop group went down a storm at its an­nual Christ­mas con­cert.

Tributes to es­tab­lished stars mixed su­perbly with ex­pertly chore­ographed dance rou­tines as pupils and staff blew off some steam to mark the end of 2018.

Stu­dents also took part in a Strictly Come Danc­ing-themed con­test and a trip to Brae­head on the fi­nal day of term.

Re­spond­ing to the school’s Christ­mas con­cert, an Air­drie Academy spokesper­son said:“Our thanks go to ev­ery­one who con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of the event.

“Our pupils would have put many es­tab­lished mu­si­cal acts to shame with their ab­so­lutely bril­liant per­for­mances.”
