Wokingham schools will find it easier to take part in an annual fundraiser as the event is going digital.
Teachers and pupils involved in SignHealth’s sign2sing Guinness World Record breaking attempt on February 6, next year will now have access to digital resources.
Steve Powell, chief executive of SignHealth, the healthcare charity for deaf people, said: “The digital resource pack will be available to all schools that register for sign2sing, which is the attempt for the most people signing and singing at the same time, and will include a free whiteboard app.
“Sign2sing is all about communication and the app will make it easy for teachers to teach the signs and song in an engaging way.
“We believe the move will make event participation even more accessible and are hoping it will mean lots more Wokingham schools will take part.”
The sign2sing project is in its third year and the record is 114,277 people signing and singing while raising money. Schools wishing to take part should register at www.sign2sing.org.uk. For details call (01494) 687 600.
