Sherston school sings out to raise funds for African school

Date: 21/02/2013

Sherston Primary School hit a high note this week as it raised funds for an African School with a three-hour sing-a-thon.

The singing marathon, which took place on Tuesday, was held to raise money and awareness for Sherston Musul School in Kenya.

Debbie Liddle, deputy headteacher of Sherston School, said: “We’ve had contact with the Musul community in Kenya for coming up to ten years.

“I went out in 2004 to help build a couple of water towers, and since then we have built a school and had regular contact with them.

“They called themselves Sherston Musul, and their chief warrior came to open a building here. We’ve kept the regular contact and try to do something each year as a fundraiser.”

For three hours, students, teachers, and other members of staff passed the Maasai Urungu stick, keeping the flow of song.  See the full article at the websiteor follow our quicklink on the sherstonmusul twitter account.
