Pupils at Seaton Primary School have had a busy time – helping achieve a world record and strengthening cultural links.

Year four youngsters performed the Friends Forever song as part of a world record attempt on behalf of the Deaf Health Charity, SignHealth - helping to achieve the highest number of people signing and singing at the same time.

They helped the whole school to learn the signs and words to the chorus and the performance raised more than £100 for the charity.

The school has also been taking part in multi-cultural week activities.

Each year group has studied a different country and taken part in a range of different activities. Year two pupils learnt all about India and visited the Tandoori Tonight restaurant in Seaton. The children were treated to a feast of traditional Indian cuisine and even got to watch the chef make some naan bread in a real tandoori oven.

“The children really enjoyed the experience and we would like to thank the owners, Abu Sohel and Shaheda Rupa, for their generosity,” said year two teacher Lizzie Trewick.
