Schoolchildren in Letchworth and Baldock raised funds to help those affected by deafness last week by performing a song with associated hand signs.

Hundreds of children took part in the national sign2sing event – organised by deaf health charity SignHealth – at St Christopher School and Knights Templar School.

St Christopher head Richard Palmer told how the whole school had got behind the scheme, with everyone from nursery children to sixth-formers and staff practising the song over two weeks.

He added: “We were delighted to raise money and awareness for this important cause and had great fun along the way.”

At Knights Templar, the classes and Year 7 choir were accompanied by teacher Rachel Thomas on the piano and Year 7’s Edward Stacey on the drums. Collections were made afterwards for SignHealth, with children awarded a special sticker.

Ms Thomas said: “The students really enjoyed singing the song. Seeing and hearing 220 children all signing and signing together was very powerful and moving.”
