It was an Angus double tonight as the two-night Rock Challenge drew to a close at Dundee’s Caird Hall.
Dream Big, Shine Bright was the 2016 mission for pupils taking part in the nationwide initiative which aims to inspire youngsters aged 7 to 18.
Forfar Academy triumphed this evening in the senior competition with a performance which was entitled Chains of Egypt.
Strathmore Primary School achieved success in the junior section after performing Out of The Darkness and Into The Light.

Last year’s winners Arbroath High School, Morgan Academy, Perth High and the two Arbroath primaries of Inverbrothock and Warddykes also took part in tonight’s heat.
