During the day the Pearl of Africa performed to all pupils and led workshops in drumming, dance and singing.  They also led Q & A sessions about their life in Uganda.  

Other highlights of the day were an impromptu football match with Year 7 at lunchtime, and BBC Radio Lancashire broadcasting live from the event.

It was an amazing day; pupils and staff alike were 'blown away' by the choir.  The day culminated in a performance with St Bede's pupils dancing and singing on stage with the choir.

Money was raised for the choir by bucket collections, a craft stall and non-uniform day.  Watch this space for the total amount.
