Clydesdale Schools of Ambition 2010

SPANISH and Bollywood dancing took centre stage at a Schools of Ambition event hosted by Lanark Primary School and attended by 170 youngsters from 12 Clydesdale schools.

Robert Owen Primary pupils showed off their fancy moves, while other schools produced demonstrations as diverse as Brazilian drumming and innovative art.

The combined effort of pupils from Carmichael, Braehead and New Lanark Primary Schools wowed everyone by showing off artwork from items collected during a visit to Lanark Loch.

The kids used leaves and sticks to make a dragon, and made a model football pitch out of pebbles and sticks, with a fir cone surrounded by daisies used as the football.

Other highlights included Lanark Primary youngsters' rap music skills and Carstairs and Carstairs Junction Primary pupils banners made during the previous six weeks.

The day marked Lanark Primary's celebration of the end of its two-year Schools of Ambition programme.

Schools of Ambition is designed to empower pupils by broadening their horizons and letting them share responsibilities.
