Visiting Culloden Primary on Sing Up Day

The newest member of the Sing Up team visited a school who signed and sang in a special celebration

Visiting Culloden Primary on Sing Up Day

At Sing Up it's important to us that everyone gets to experience the joy of singing with others, so when Damian Piekacz joined our team just two weeks before Sing Up Day, we knew that we had to find him a school to visit. Culloden Primary School in Tower Hamlets answered the call and welcomed Damian into their singing celebration on the morning of 13 March. Here's what Damian had to say about his first experience of a singing school.


I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Culloden Primary School in Tower Hamlets, East London, as a guest for their Sing Up Day event. Having joined Sing Up two weeks prior I was not entirely sure what to expect. My initial thought was that there would be a smaller group of students singing or I would be in a classroom, perhaps also seeing the pupils singing in between classes or before morning break. I was not expecting to be greeted by the whole school sitting in front of me in the school hall eager to sing after weeks of practice.

Culloden Primary School has more hearing impaired children on their register than any other school in the area and consequently are specialists in that field of education. It was clear that inclusion is at the heart of their philosophy as the whole school signed and sang along to One moment, one people (this year's Sing Up Day anthem, composed by Beccy Owen) together. Thank you Culloden Primary for sharing your celebration with me and showing me what a happy, inclusive community a singing school can be.
