"They promoted the event for several weeks to make sure that they had the numbers. Of course getting the 330 participants to rehearse properly prior to recording the five minutes was also quite a challenge," said Assistant Headmaster David Clark. "Some of the mobile phone designs were exceptional and covered the range from the latest smart phones to some very old styles. It was great fun and all the pupils deserve credit for making it an enjoyable event."
Every entrant contributed £2 (about $3.13), which brings the total amount of money raised by the school this academic year to a little over £50,000. The funds will be donated to schools in Ukraine, Tanzania, India, and 18 U.K. charities.
