Mela marvels


- Ten pupils aged 5-9 from Onthank Primary's Gaelic unit in Kilmarnock, have performed in a Vaisakhi Mela concert in front of a 400-strong audience on Punjabi radio and TV. The invitation arose after the pupils performed a play about the five Sikh symbols and a bhangra dance in front of Dalbir Kaur Singh, a member of the Sikh community and local businesswoman.

Classy film


- St Brigid's Primary in Toryglen, Glasgow, has won a short film competition to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Scottish Poppy Appeal, organised by Poppyscotland, the charity to support ex-servicemen and women. Their film, James Stokes - A Gorbals Hero, was produced by the two P7 classes about a Second World War Victoria Cross winner.
