Musical performance at Stratheden Hospital

Our String Group and Wind Band spent Tuesday afternoon at Stratheden Hospital performing Christmas Carols for the patients.  The pupils did such a fantastic job that Santa himself made an appearance.

Thank you to everyone – Stratheden staff, Music Instructors, pupils and the patients – who helped to make this a very special occasion.
