Woodburn Primary School Choir hits the right note with Dalkeith Country Park

Friday, 22 December 2017

Woodburn Primary School’s choir visited Dalkeith Country Park to sing carols for visitors to Restoration Yard, spreading some Christmas cheer.

The choir performed to thank staff at the Park for donating a real Christmas tree to the school from its pop-up Christmas tree shop.

The 35 pupils had the opportunity to explore Fort Douglas playground after entertaining staff and visitors with their rendition of popular Christmas carols.

Julie Merrilees, Visitor Services Manager at Dalkeith Country Park, said: “We were over the moon when the choir from Woodburn Primary School asked to perform for us.

“It was a delight to welcome them to the Park and their singing was thoroughly enjoyed by all. It definitely helped us to get in the festive spirit.”

Joanna Taylor, Headteacher at Woodburn Primary School, said: “Our wonderful Christmas tree from Dalkeith Country Park is absolutely beautiful and we wanted to thank staff for their kind donation. 

“Our choir loved singing for the team and visitors and they all had a ball running around the superb playground afterwards.”

The pop-up shop is stocking five, six and seven foot Nordmann Fir trees which were grown in Stirling and is open until 24th December.
