PRIMARY school children from across Warrington got to put into practice what they have been learning at a unique concert.

Children from St Elphin’s C of E Primary School, Fairfield, St Margaret’s C of E Primary School, Orford, Latchford St James C of E Primary School, Brook Acre Primary School, Padgate and St Benedict’s Primary in Orford have been enjoying workshops in music, art, dance and poetry.

They were taught by experts from the orchestra, Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation and celebrated poet Terry Caffrey among others.

During preparation for the concert, pupils have also worked with artist Sumit Sarkar to create rhino, lion and elephant sculptures for the special event.

They hit the stage in the afternoon with a show for wider members of the public held in the evening.

The work was based around French composer Saint-Saens’ 1886 work and is one of the most popular pieces of classical music The NCO called the event, held at the Parr Hall, its most ambitious piece of work to date.
