Children's Odyssey
Cullivoe Primary School held a music and drama festival for Burravoe, Cullivoe and Skerries Primary Schools.

The star attraction was Helen Sharp, a member of the CHROMA group who was visiting the islands.

Helen plays a harp and all the children loved listening to her and participating in her workshops.

The theme for the day was the Odyssey and the children created their own monsters, learned the Odysseus song and had great fun.

The only disappointment was that the pupils from Fetlar were inable to join them due to industrial action.

Head teacher of Cullivoe school Mark Lawson said many thanks should go to all who helped make the day such a fabulous success.

(note from webmistress: the Fetlar children came to the workshops in Unst on the Thursday instead)
