GRENEWAY School pupils have sung their way into the record books.

The school took part in the Big Sing 2008, which saw people around the country break the record for the biggest ever simultaneous sing-a-long.

Led by the school choir, every pupil and member of staff came together to belt out a few verses of the Des'ree hit You Gotta Be.

Stuart Debenham, acting leader of music at Greneway, said: "Everyone here was practising the song and looking forward to taking part.

"It was brilliant to be part of this enormous musical noise and great that we have helped to raise money to support three charities too."

The previous record for simultaneous singing was 293,978, and the Big Sing saw this landmark demolished, with almost 700,000 vocalists taking part nationwide.
