On December 5th 2013 we recorded Newbottle Primary School.
This was a fantastic project, and the school provided a CD for every child in the school which is a fantastic gesture and meant that every child had a lasting memento of the project to enjoy.
Each class recorded a Christmas song, as did the school choir and even the staff choir joined in with the festive spirit by recording a song for the CD.
You can read the press coverage in the Sunderland Echo:
MOVE over Cliff Richard, a Wearside school is recording its own Christmas CD.
The pupils and staff at Newbottle Primary School had a recording studio brought to them so they could create their own festive music. The Houghton Road school invited the company, My School CD, along to help them plan and record the tracks.
Kevin Beston, deputy headteacher at the school, said: "We thought this was a great way for the children to experience something completely different, and the whole school has been involved with the project". He said they wanted the children to experience all the different aspects of being singers, such as rehearsing regularly, recording the songs and singing live.
