Schools Pledge 2012 update
Having taken place on the day the Olympic Torch arrived in the UK, the Schools Pledge was part of the Big Dance programme which runs throughout the summer.
One participant enthused: "It's a once in a lifetime's chance to be part of a world record attempt."
As well as schools across the region taking part, there were central locations in Nottingham, Leicester, Lincoln, Derby and Corby where people came together to share the excitement. People also participated from as far afield as Lebanan, China and Venezuela!
The latest news is that Schools Pledge 2012 is on course to break the world record. The verified numbers will be announced in June.
Well done to everyone taking part and thanks to everyone that made it possible.
