Happy Hours after school club really did stage the greatest show this week.

The kids at St Fergus RC Primary School’s after school club held their festive Christmas fair when parents were able to buy a number of hand-crafted gifts that the children had made themselves.

The main attraction was Happy Hours’ very own performance of smash-hit film The Greatest Showman.

Pupils from P3-P7 spent weeks learning six of the most iconic numbers from the movie and learned dance routines to go with them.

Happy Hours manager Sarah Smith said: “We hold a fair annually and each year we usually sing a couple of Christmas carols.

“We thought we would change it a bit this year and asked the children what they wanted to perform and they chose The Greatest Showman.

“For the past three weeks the children have been learning the songs including A Million Dreams and This Is Me.

“The night went really well, the kids were all absolutely amazing.

“This is the first year we have used the big stage at St Fergus Primary to perform and the kids loved being up there.

“They had spotlights on them and everything.

“All of the parents loved it and gave the show rave reviews.

“I took photos all the way through the process of the pupils learning the songs so I am going to make a scrapbook as a keepsake for the show.

“In total we raised about £170 which will go back into the club.

“We have a children’s voices club so the kids get to have meetings and discuss exactly what they want to use the money for and what resources they would like to see in the club.

“This is the first year that myself and supervisor Kerry Whyte have organised something a bit different and we are hoping to take it forward next year.”
