During the first week of half term, Chorlton High School was given a very exciting opportunity.
One of our Year 7 students, applied for a special edition Diamond Blue Peter badge and his application was accepted, making him one of the first in the country to receive this award.
He stated in his application that he was currently learning a new musical skill, the trumpet, and had joined a new concert band to play with. Blue Peter asked if they could come to a Concert Band rehearsal to surprise him and present him with the badge.
Teachers helped to keep the surprise secret by pretending to film a “School Band documentary” as cover up, and it was worth it in the end for such a wonderful surprise.
Not only did all the students get to meet Lindsay Russel, Blue Peter Presenter, but they also gave her a mini trumpet lesson, so she was able to join the CHS Concert Band too!
Chorlton High School appeared on Blue Peter on Thursday 29th March 2018 on CBBC. The is available for a short time and can be viewed by clicking HERE.
