Pupils put on a lively event

MORE than 100 musicians from Ponteland High School, Ponteland Middle School and Richard Coates Middle School recently came together for their first ‘Rock Day’.

The students prepared pieces on their instruments and the event culminated in a whole group performance on drums, guitars, keyboards and vocals to staff and parents.

Phil Noble, director of music and performing arts at Pont High, said: “It was a fantastic day which showcased the wealth of musical talent here in Ponteland.”
