It’s the most wonderful time of the year – for looking back on a memorable day in 2005.
Seventeen years have passed since students from across South Tyneside joined forces for a massed Christmas singalong at Temple Park leisure centre.
It was a cast of hundreds and we hope these photos bring back memories of a great day.
The only way to find out is by having a look through these scenes from the Shields Gazette archives.
