Pupils at Cardinal Newman High School in Bellshill put on a colourful spectacle recently when they staged their own version of the traditional Mexican Day of the Dead Fiesta.

The festival focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died and was an incredible success.

Pupils had learned Spanish songs and danced to the sound of Mexican party band Papido Mariach.

The benediction was led in Spanish by Canon Glackin and pupils helped out by carrying flowers and the cross.
