HUNDREDS of primary school pupils across Renfrewshire have used their singing skills to show solidarity with Ukraine.

A total of 15 schools in the area came together to perform a cover version of Let It Go, from the Disney film Frozen, in support of the country as it faces hostility from Russia.

The project was organised by Renfrewshire Music Services, with each class recording their part individually before all of the footage was brought together to create an overall performance which has been shared via social media.

Schools that were involved included St Margaret’s Primary, St Anthony’s Primary, Auchenlodment Primary, Kirklandneuk Primary, Wallace Primary, Howwood Primary, Houston Primary, Barsail Primary, Langbank Primary, St Mary’s Primary, West Primary, Todholm Primary, St Charles’ Primary, St Peter’s Primary and St John Ogilvie Primary.

Children from primary one to primary seven took part in the video, which also included their drawings of sunflowers, which is Ukraine’s national flower.

James Cunningham, music co-ordinator for Renfrewshire schools, told The Gazette: “The video was inspired by the emotional video of a girl, Amelia, signing Let It Go from her shelter in Kyiv.

“Schools recorded their performances to a backing track, which was then mixed for the final video.

“We are also delighted to showcase artwork created by our pupils as part of the video.

“We hope that our video will continue to raise awareness of the terrible situation that Ukrainians find themselves in and perhaps encourage some people to contribute towards humanitarian charitable causes.”

Gillian Miller, headteacher at St Margaret’s Primary, added: “We are so proud to have been involved.”
