SAS World Record Attempt Update!
As you will know by now, SAS has been raising money all year for BBC Children in Need, with the main focus of this fundraising being the attempt to break the Guinness World Record for ‘World’s Largest Online Language Lesson’.
The record attempt took place at the University of Hull on Friday 13th November and looks to have been a huge success! Although we are awaiting official confirmation, we are hoping that the evidence shows that the record was broken as just over 27,000 people joined in, although not all may qualify as official participants.
Schools Advisory Service sponsored this event and were delighted to present a cheque for £20,650 after the lesson was finished! In addition to the previous fundraising and our efforts at Trigg House on the day, we are extremely proud to have raised a huge sum of money this year for Children in Need. A massive thank you to everyone involved with all of the fundraising and the World Record Attempt.
For more on the record itself, Luke Thornton (@LukeThorntonTV) has done a great review of the record attempt at http://www.lukethornton.tv/blog/2015/11/16/world-record-attempt.
