Pupils at a Corby school took part in a record-breaking challenge and the signs are good that it will be a success.

Every youngster at Studfall Junior School and teachers tok part in a bid to break the world record for the most people singing and signing a song at the same time.

The event, held at the school last week, was organised by the charity SignHealth.

Steve Powell, chief executive at SignHealth, said: “More than 1,200 schools across the country and overseas signed up to take part and we were pleased that Studfall Junior School was involved in sign2sing too.”

Pupils signed a song called sign2sing, which was composed especially for the event.

Youngsters each paid £1 to take part in the challenge and the money raised will be used to continue the charity’s work helping to improve the mental and physical health and well-being of deaf people, including deaf children.

Last year 114,277 youngsters, including Studfall Junior School pupils, took part in sign2sing and smashed the previous Guinness world record of 94,489.
