THEY’RE a talented bunch at Auchinleck Academy.
So it’s little wonder that their school show was such a huge hit with audiences.
Pupils took to the stage with their own version of High School Musical.
And they brought down the house.
As everyone lucky enough to have caught the performance will doubtless agree, it was one they won’t forget in a hurry.
