It was a night to remember for the Newlands Girls' Schools Performing Arts Choir who have sung at the Olympic Games.
Led and conducted by 17-year-old student Laura Cooper, the group of 15 girls sang a variety of songs at several locations at the Olympic Park in East London on Tuesday, July 31.
They were joined by a number of other school choirs who had also been selected to sing on the day.
Six-form student Laura, who joined the choir three years ago at the Farm Road School, said: "It was an amazing experience and one that I will never forget."
After sending off a demo tape to the Olympic organisers the group of girls only found out that they had been selected to perform a few weeks before the games were due to begin.
Headteacher Louise Ceska said it was a wonderful achievement and praised Laura for her hard work.
