A Highgate performing arts academy has recorded a tribute song as its virtual ‘thank you’ to the NHS.
Stage Academy, which normally delivers classes - now cancelled - at Highgate Primary School and Lauderdale House, brought together more than 30 parents, students and staff to raise money for NHS Charities Together.
Principal Andrew Howson said the colourful and creative song - which pieces together snippets of thanks from people’s homes - helped students reconnect with their friends while raising money for NHS workers on the coronavirus frontline.
Andrew said: “We’re showing our appreciation for the NHS and it keeps students creative while they’re not able to have their regular classes. It makes them feel a part of something.
“With this project they get to see their friends virtually and come together to produce something for a brilliant cause.”
