Young voices raised the rafters at St Martin’s Church for the annual Brighouse church schools choir competition.

Singers from St Andrew’s Infant, St Andrew’s Junior, St Chad’s and St John’s Primary Academy took part in the event, which saw school choirs sing hymns and individual songs of their choice.

After a tough competition with all the choirs performing at their best, pupils from St John’s Primary Academy were crowned 2014 winners with their rendition of ‘The Lord is my shepherd’ and ‘Memory’ from Cats

Head teacher at St John’s, Helen Lever, said: “I don’t know of any other town which has this many church schools so it really is unique and lovely that all the choirs can get together.

“It was a really lovely event and it was great that all the choirs could come together as one and sing two songs written by Peter O’Hare, head teacher at St Andrews Junior School.”

They were presented with the trophy by Calder Vallep MP Craig Whittaker (above).

Graham Genty, head teacher of last year’s winners, St Chad’s Primary School, compered the event which was judged by Susan Werner, Emma Offord and Oliver McCarthy.

There was also a performance on the night by St Martin’s Church Choir.
