PUPILS from Larkrise Special School got their best singing voices on as they sung carols in Castle Place Shopping Centre to raise awareness of their school which is under threat of closure.

The children and their parents gathered infront of the Christmas tree with protest signs as they sung to save the school.

Wiltshire Council have voted to close the school and replace it with a super school in Rowde.

Kayleigh Ramplin, a parent and chair of Friends of Larkrise School said: "The singing went really well.

"I think all the children loved it. Obviously with some of there sensory needs it was a lot for some of them, that's why we limited it to just one hour. But they all did great.

"Some of the children used their makaton, their sign language as well.

"We handed out a handful of posters about the school including the link to our gofund page.

"During, we were joined by extra friends and at all times had at least a couple of people watching.

"It was a great hit.

"My daughter has attended Larkrise for three years, we walk to school each day. She is Non-Verbal Autistic, possible asthmatic, and has a delection of chromosome p16 which effects her immune system.

"She adores her school, teachers and friends, I am terrified about what her future holds without the concern of loosing her school, her second home almost."
