Teachers and pupils have worked together to produce a rap video in the hope of attracting the star DJs of Radio 1 to their secondary school.
Staff and Year 11 students at Norden High in Rishton have created a 30 second clip as part of the Children in Need ‘Best Day Ever’ competition.
If the school is successful then DJs Nick Grimshaw, Fearne Cotton, Scott Mills and Greg James could visit for ‘an almighty takeover’, which would see the DJs throw a school disco and take a special assembly.
The competition is open to all secondary schools across the UK and schools are judged on their video’s originally, creativity and enthusiasm.
In Norden High School’s video, history teacher, Nicci Brown, raps: “Yo yo, BBC, oh goodness gracious me. Yo, yo, yo, come here to Norden and help us relieve our boredom.
“The teachers are so enthusiastic, that’s why we’re so fantastic.
“Come here to humanities, where maths and English are the bee’s knees.
“If you come we’ll feed you school dinner, Mr Mitchell’s grub is a winner.
“We can all dress up silly but bring your coat, it might be chilly. It’s okay we’re not that far away
“So drive up the M6 to Lancashire, if you come to our school it will be spectacular.”
Head teacher Tim Mitchell, who also stars in the video alongside his fellow teachers, said it was a ‘fantastic’ idea thought up by the pupils.
He said: “The idea came from some of the Year 11 senior students, they approached members of staff with the idea and we were happy to get on board.” To see the Norden High School’s rap visit their Facebook page or search YouTube for ‘Norden High School Children in Need Rap’.
