Children from primary schools all over Cheshire West have been in harmony.

The youngsters, from St Clare’s, St Theresa’s, Hoole and St Werburgh’s & St Columba’s RC primary schools in Chester, St Saviour in Ellesmere Port, St Winefrides in Neston and St Luke’s in Frodsham have been singing together for a One Voice in Harmony project about living together in peace.

 

The project was led by Rachael Borman, a teacher at St Werburgh’s and St Columba’s, and the children learnt a selection of songs including Ubuntu, Happy and Raise my Voice before finally coming together at Chester Catholic High School for a Big Sing event.

Rachael said: “Being involved in singing projects like this is so important for children in primary schools. It allows different communities to come together, meet up, make new friends and perform to their families, show off their talents and have fun, which in turn develops their confidence and self esteem.”

The project involved 365 children from Years 3 and 4.
