If you watch Children in Need this Friday, you may spot some familiar faces on the telly- because 10 pupils from Broughton Primary will be singing, live, as members of the Children in Need Edinburgh Schools Choir!
Around half a dozen schools have sent pupils to be in the choir, and our 10 are all members of our school Glee Club, run by Miss McCrimmon. They are, from P6 and P7-
Isaac, Evie, Merla, Lila, Tilda, Maira, Paloma, Grace, Gabi and Isla.
They have been practising so hard for this, spending the past 2 weekends over at Clovenstone Primary School rehearsing with all the pupils from the other schools. Pudsey himself even turned up yesterday to help out!
On Friday, our 10 pupils and Miss McCrimmon will join the rest of the city choir to head through to Glasgow to be filmed singing one of their songs, and then to be part of a UK wide live song, with choirs from all over the UK singing together from their respective locations.
They sound fantastic, and we are incredibly proud of them. If you want to watch the UK wide live performance, here are times and channels to catch it-
Friday 15th: BBC One (UK wide) Choir Singalong: Between 8pm and 9pm
