LAURELHILL Community College welcomed in
spring with a charity concert on behalf of the Shire Urban
Primary School and the Kanengo AIDS orphanage in Malawi.
This cause is close to the hearts of all at
Laurelhill - especially Deputy Head Derek McClelland who visited
the area last summer.
He was amazed at the optimism and positive
attitude of the orphans despite their dire circumstances.
Inspired by his visit, the College has made
it its aim to aid the orphanage and raise funds through a
variety of events throughout the school year. The concert
consisted of performances by a number of pupils, including a
Year Eight Choir, School Band as well as performances by a
number of Year 12 GCSE pupils. The audience was wowed by the
talent of the pupils in the College and all those present felt
the night was a tremendous success.
