Pupils from a Boldon school excelled as they spent a day on stage performing in a ‘spectacular show’.

East Boldon Infants School, based in Front Street, held a full school concert at the Customs House, in Mill Dam, South Shields, last week.

The children performed song and dance routines in front of a packed audience of parents, while musical instruments including the violin, cello and penny whistle were played.

Pupils enjoyed a ‘fantastic’ day as they were given the chance to show off their talents.

Deputy headteacher Lisa Holt said: “The whole school took part in the music and dance performance for all the parents and families to see.

“The children worked very hard and rehearsed all morning at the Customs House, and put on a spectacular show in the afternoon.

“It was a chance for all of our children to experience what it’s like to be on stage and showcase their music and dance talents, and it was a fantastic day for everyone involved.”

There was no particular theme for the performance, with a range of song and dance routines displayed by the children.

And they all performed like ‘superstars’, according to Mrs Holt. She added: “There was singing and dancing from the children, while musical instruments were played, including the violin, cello and penny whistle.

“We really wanted the children to have the opportunity of being on stage, and it would have been difficult to get everyone together in one room at the school, so this was perfect.

“The whole school was therefore able to attend, from reception to Year 2. We decided to hold it somewhere all the adults could watch, and the children could be on stage and perform like superstars. It was a good opportunity to get the whole school together, as well as the parents, and the room was full to the brim.”
