Youngsters from Uddingston’s Aitkenhead Primary School performed at this year’s Celebration of Youth Music event in Motherwell Concert Hall.

The children joined pupils from a number of schools throughout North Lanarkshire to perform songs that they had written themselves as well as popular songs.

This year’s theme was ‘We are the World’ and each of the schools’ songs were inspired by a different country or geographical area, with Aitkenhead covering Brazil.

The songs have been recorded and form a compilation charity album, which is available to purchase from the participating schools.
