Primary schools from Penarth and the surrounding areas are already getting into the festive spirit as they are taking part in St Cyres School’s ‘A Song for Christmas’ music video project.
Llandough, Cogan, Dinas Powys, Fairfield, St Andrews Major and Evenlode Primary schools have all been set the task to learn the well known Christmas hit, Mariah Carey’s All I want for Christmas is you’.
Project co-ordinator and St Cyres music teacher Mr Richard Hopkin will film all of the different schools singing separately and then edit the footage together to create one Christmas music video. Filming and production starts in November ready to be published on St Cyres School’s YouTube channel (SCTV) in time for Christmas.
Mr Hopkin said ‘Christmas is a time for joining together and this video will definitely bring joy to the community. We did this in 2013 and it was very successful, the pupils involved shared it with friends and family through social media and it was viewed thousands of times all around the world’.
The video is planned to be uploaded to YouTube on 1st December.
