VIP guests joined students from Woodley schools for an evening full of singing and entertainment. The Bulmershe School was filled with children from Addington School, Waingels College and Highwood Primary School for an energetic SingIN concert.
The event, held on Sunday 20 October, brought together nine to 19-year-olds. Accompanied by a fantastic live band and a community choir, 50 voices put together a spectacular show.
The project began with a launch day, where students from all schools came together to partner with their ‘buddy’ and start working on the songs. With many school day and after-school rehearsals, all efforts were focused on delivering an outstanding performance.
The main aim of the concert was to form long-lasting friendships, while enjoying signing together.
“What a wonderful event this was,” said Wokingham Borough Mayor, Cllr Bill Soane. “I champion inclusion and diversity. It’s great to see so many children learning from one another and achieving great things together.
“A truly fantastic evening was had by everyone, which is a testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment from families, teachers and support staff. I am so glad to have been able to attend.”
