A TALENTED singing group from a school in Southsea visited their sister school in Merseyside to take part in centenary celebrations.

Reformed, which is made up of six girls from St John’s College, visited the De La Salle School in St Helen’s over the bank holiday weekend for a celebration of singing and worship.

There they joined in De La Salle’s major Youth Festival which involved 150 youngsters from schools across the country.

It was their first performance outside the Portsmouth area, and they also enjoyed camping, singing workshops, a disco which they sang at and church services.

Brian Foakes, Reformed’s director, said: ‘The potential of the young singers is tremendous.

‘It is a privilege to work with such an enthusiastic group of pupils.’

The singers came together recently and called themselves Reformed because of their flexible repertoire, which ranges from Jessie J to Gregorian chant.
