HUDDERSFIELD pupils have signed up to help break a world record.
Children from five primary schools will be taking part in the record breaking attempt next month for the most people signing and singing a song simultaneously.
The challenge will require them to learn the sign language and words for The New Seekers 1970s song I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing.
The youngsters from Castle Hill School in Newsome, Denby Church of England (C of E) First School in Upper Denby, Kayes First and Nursery School in Clayton West, Paddock Junior Infant and Nursery School and Spring Grove Junior Infant and Nursery will join 50,000 schoolchildren nationwide attempting the challenge at 2.45pm on February 9.
Steve Powell, Chief Executive of organisers SignHealth, said: “Our Guinness World Records sign2sing project is an attempt to break the world record for the most people singing and signing a song at the same time.
“More than 380 schools have signed up and we are delighted the five in Huddersfield are involved with the event too.
“The current world record is 13,418 people so it looks likely that we’ll smash this while also raising awareness of deafness and the work we are doing at SignHealth.”
