Stella Maris School's Infant and Junior choir took first and second places in Heaton Mersey Youth Festival's choral competition. The Junior choir came second in the under 11s competition and the Infant choir won a cup for coming first in the under 7s.
They sang five songs - Minka, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, Scoo Be Doo Song, English Country Gardens, and A Spoonful of Sugar during their performance at St John's Church... and for the first time ever, sang in two parts unaccompanied.
The school's music teacher Mrs Shaw commented: "i'm so proud of all the children, they worked really hard and it's a great achievement."
The competition was adjudicated by Gaynor Keeble.
