Pop legend Annie Lennox has donated a number of her old report cards to her former school in Aberdeen.

Lennox was a pupil at the Aberdeen High School for Girls - now Harlaw Academy - from 1959 to 1972.

The donated reports include a music mention stating: "Her contribution to various aspects of school music will be remembered for some time."

The singer shot to fame in her band Eurythmics with hits such as Sweet Dreams are Made of This.

The often private singer donated the items after a request from pupils, who wrote to her asking for something to commemorate the fact she attended the school.

The quality of her work always depended on her current mood

Pupils and staff were delighted when she donated several items including old reports.

The comments, from Annie's final year at the school in 1972, include: "Ann has been a most co-operative musician to work with.

"Her contribution to various aspects of school music, especially the orchestra, will be remembered for some time."

For art the report states: "During the last year Ann has made substantial progress, but the quality of her work always depended on her current mood."

'First contact'

Principal guidance teacher Anne Douglas said: "This all stemmed from a discussion about famous former pupils and the pupils asked why there was nothing to mark the fact Annie Lennox attended the school.

"They wanted to commemorate this as an inspiration to present and future pupils of the school.

"We are all absolutely delighted Annie has taken the time to do this and as far as I know, this is the first time she has made contact with the school since leaving.

"The montage will have pride of place in the school foyer."

Lennox enjoyed huge success during the 1980s in the Eurythmics with Dave Stewart, and more recently as a solo performer and song writer.

Other hits included Who's That Girl?, Here Comes the Rain Again and There Must Be an Angel.

She has won awards including Grammys, Brits and a Golden Globe.
