HUNDREDS of pupils in Bassetlaw are now record breakers.
Around 300 children from nine schools from the county took part in a national world record attempt at singing and using sign language simultaneously.
They took part in the sign2sing event which saw them signing and singing the New Seeker’s hit I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing. The record was 13,418 people, but over 92,000 registered to take part in it.
The Bassetlaw gathering was organised by Notts County Council’s art support service as part of an afternoon dubbed The Big Sing and took place at The Well, in Retford.
It included several singing performances as well as the record attempt.
Coun Philip Owen, the county council’s cabinet member for children and young people, said: “The young people of Bassetlaw participating in this event can be proud of themselves.”
Redland’s Primary, North Wheatley C of E, Carr Hill Primary, Bracken Lane Primary, St Swithun’s school, Beckingham Primary, Ordsall Primary, Thrumpton Primary and Serlby Park Primary all took part.
