CHILDREN from Ballantrae Primary made a special appearance on national television this week as they were invited to sing on ITV's This Morning.

Presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford stood by as the local schoolchildren performed their Christmas songs outside the ITV studios.

The Ballantrae pupils flew down to London at the weekend to appear on the breakfast show on Monday morning and were greeted with lots of good luck messages on the way down as Carrick locals found out about their TV debut. They certainly did parents and the area proud.
