An Aberdeen Football Club player surprised an Ellon music school to congratulate them on passing their latest set of exams.
Top goal scorer Adam Rooney arrived unannounced at Skin Deep Music School with his wife to present pupils with certificates for their efforts a couple of days before Christmas.
Owners Jayne and Ian Brown thanked the couple for visiting the school.
They told the Times: “We would like to say a big thank you to Adam and his lovely wife Rachel for taking the time to come in and present our pupils with their certificates.
“Adam’s wife comes here for guitar lessons and Adam sometimes has drum lessons so we were thrilled when he agreed to come along.
“We would also like to wish Aberdeen Football Club all the very best for 2015!”
The school obtained another 100& pass rate with pupils achieving grades one up to eight.
Tutors Jayne and Ian added: “We would like to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to our pupils and their families.
“We also wish our pupils and tutors who will be performing at Gig at the Brig all the very best - we know you will do very well!”
