A SCHOOL took part in the Mothers' Day service on Radio Stoke on Sunday.

St John's Primary School was approached by the BBC to record the service, which went out on Sunday morning and again in the afternoon.

All 196 pupils took part in the event, which was held at St John's Church. Seventy parents also joined pupils at the recording which took place the previous Wednesday.

Pupils composed their own poems and prayers and the school choir performed songs.

Headteacher Diana Higton gave the introduction and Reverend Sue Goodwin conducted the sermon, while deputy headteacher Justin Clarke conducted the school choir.

Mrs Higton said: "The BBC asked us if we were interested in recording the Mothers' Day service. We agreed and worked on it as we felt it was a privilege to be asked to take part.

"The children were amazing and we did not have to do any retakes.

"Taking part in the recording has been a great experience for all the pupils."
