It was an amazing day for KS2 choir, who arrived at Wembley SSE Arena at 1:45 in the afternoon after having left school at half past 12.
We waited with all the other schools and were ushered into a gigantic auditorium - then excitement really started bubbling. We took our seats and rehearsals kicked off at 3:30 with schools joining the choirs on the stage for the banner parade. Amidst lots of excited chatter, gleeful laughter and looking around in awe we settled down and rehearsed some songs together and then eagerly had our dinner. We donned our VIAM t-shirts, went shopping to buy some of the merchandise on display including glow sticks which we used for the magical effect when singing the songs.
At 7:15 the concert started and we sang our hearts out to the public, which included our families. We heard the back story of VIAM and its links with Adoption UK. We got back to Tickford Park at 11:45. Many were fast asleep on the coach, but some were still buzzing with the excitement of the day.
Thank you to all who brought in pennies to donate to this charity. What an amazing day we had!
