Record- break­ing pupils are awarded prizes

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

Stu­dents have been pre­sented with cer­tifi­cates for their part in break­ing a Guin­ness World Record by tak­ing part in a unique singing event.

Jack Hunt School head­teacher, Pamela Kil­bey, pre­sented a bronze cer­tifi­cate to pupils who took part in the Sign2S­ing event and con­grat­u­lated them on their achieve­ment.

The event which took place in Fe­bru­ary last year saw pupils join 130,000 par­tic­i­pants across Great Bri­tain to sign and sing a song si­mul­ta­ne­ously for the Guin­ness World Record at­tempt.

Teresa Quail, lead teacher of the deaf, said: “We at Jack Hunt School will con­tinue to pro­mote the in­clu­sion of all in­di­vid­u­als re­gard­less of their level of hear­ing loss and com­mu­ni­ca­tion mode.”

The Jack Hunt School, in Led­bury Road, is plan­ning to help beat this year’s record, so more stu­dents and staff will be in­volved in the event again on Fe­bru­ary 6 at 2.45pm.

If you are in­ter­ested in be­ing in­volved in your school or busi­ness, go to www.Sign2S­ing.org.uk to reg­is­ter.
