AROUND 140 Senior Citizens from the local area enjoyed a treat from the pupils at Lochgelly High School before the school Easter holiday.

Those who attended came from the Benarty, Cardenden and Lochgelly areas and on their arrival settled down in the school dining hall (transformed by pupils from the Art department) to some seasonal Easter fare provided by pupils from the Home Economics department, led by Mrs E Grindlay. The audience were then entertained by a varied musical programme including a performance from the school’s award winning Pipe Band and much celebrated Steel Band.

The programme arranged by Miss Mandy Miller (Principal Teacher Music), also included performances from the Wind Band, Percussion Ensemble, Brass Ensemble, String Group and three soloists.

Dylan Reid (S5), Charlotte Alexander (S4) and Katie Maxwell (S4) delighted their audience with accomplished renditions of Kiss the Rain (Piano), The Call of Angelus (Flute) and Food Glorious, Food (Trombone).

The warm reception given by the audience was testimony to the quality of the entertainment provided by so many very talented young people.

The school was once again pleased by the demand for tickets for this traditional annual event which has been running for 32 years and recognises its continued popularity as evidence of the school’s vital role in offering partnership within the community and bringing the generations together.

The Senior Citizens generously supported a raffle which included many Easter prizes.

Two local charities will benefit to the tune of £300 from everyone’s generosity.
