A SCHOOLGIRL from Dunmurry High School is heading to Scotland next week to take part in auditions for the X-Factor.

Rebecca Dalzell, a Year 11 pupil, is going to Hampden Park where she will be singing 'Where Do Broken Hearts Go?' by Whitney Houston and she hopes she will impress the judges who include Simon Cowell.

Lloyd Scates, Rebecca's music teacher said: "Rebecca has a very distinctive voice with a good tone quality. She has been receiving singing lessons for the past year through the extended schools' programme and already shows a mature range. She is very talented and I am sure that she will do well next week." Rebecca is currently taking part in rehearsals for Joseph And His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat which the school will be putting on next November, as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations.

In addition, the school will be producing a special-edition commemorative magazine as well as holding a number of events including a reunion for former staff and pupils.

Anyone who would like to help in the preparations for this occasion or who would like any information about the proposed events is asked to contact the school on 02890622828.
