FOLSS donated £100 towards iSingPOP project

28th October 2017 Off By folss_admin

We were very proud to support the iSingPOP project, for which we donated £100 towards the cost of running the music and performance project. We received a thank you card from the school, created and written by the Y6 Worship Team.

Pupils, staff, parents and governors at Leonard Stanley Church of England (Aided) Primary School were delighted to welcome iSingPOP for a singing, dance and performance project. Children across the school spent the week with the iSingPOP team learning specially written pop songs based on Christian values. The project culminated in the whole school recording a CD of their songs and performing two fantastic concerts at St Swithun’s Church, Leonard Stanley.

The children between them had to learn 7 songs and 7 dance routines, performing them in front of a packed audience (who also had to do a bit of a dance routine themselves!) they were totally enthused by the project. Feedback from the children has been amazing! The school hope to work with them again in the future.

iSingPOP is a primary school singing and recording project that brings together school, church and community by using the entire school to produce its very own pop album. Typically, it takes four days to learn and record the songs, then a week later the children perform them at a concert held at the local church. This is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the children through a wonderful live performance. There is also an opportunity to purchase a copy of the album.

The project also featured on the Stroud News website.
