Boogie, Arleen and Marty from Forth 1

Strathesk had an early Christmas treat today as Forth 1 visited us to record the staff and children singing a Christmas song.  It will be broadcast in a few weeks on the radio in the morning – we will let you know the date and time as soon as we hear!

Some of our pupils were also interviewed and snippets of this may also be broadcast.
