A video featuring a group of teachers from Penarth’s St Cyres Secondary school is amassing hits by the thousands on the internet channel YouTube
The video is the third to have been made by the school – outside of normal teaching hours – in aid of the BBC’s Children in Need appeal . This time, the “group” formed by the school staff has adopted the band-name “Wrong Direction”.
Even the head teacher Dr Jonathan Hicks has been pressed into performing – doubling as a brass player and a X-Factor-style voice-over announcer.
The teachers have abandoned their sober day-time teaching attire and have kitted themselves out in authentic 1980s outfits – the sort of clobber rock performers once wore on Top of the Pops back in the day.
Although the deep-throat voice-over introducing the act is really is headmaster Dr Hicks, the group itself is miming to Glee’s version of a song called “Don’t Stop Believing”.
Already “Wrong Direction” has raised over £1,000 for Children in Need this year and those the internet clicks just keep on coming. To see “Wrong Direction” in action – just press the play button in the centre of the screen below.
