Burgh Primary School

Campie Primary School

Loretto Junior School

Pinkie St Peter's Primary School

Wallyford Primary School

Whitecraig Primary School


Jonathan Hewat, Director of External Affairs at Loretto School, said, "This is a most exciting project for the children and the Town of Musselburgh. The children are all working really hard and the performance on 8th December is certainly one not to be missed! The performance will ooze charm, talent, enthusiasm and there will be a few surprised along the way! Quite simply, move over Gareth Malone - the Musselburgh Primary Schools' Community Choir performance is the one that really matters!"
