On Tuesday morning senior staff and members from Arbroath Academy were given a demonstration of African drumming.

And headteacher Mrs Doreen Redfern and depute Mrs Kelly McIntosh were instructed by the S3 Flexibility group.

The event had been organised by music teachers Miss Marina Kyle and Mrs Deborah Coull.

The pupils had prepared PowerPoint presentations showing different African instruments – djembes, doum doums and Ghana bells - and after a demonstration on how to play the instruments, the visiting teachers joined in a group performance.
