Britain's Got Talent star act wow pupils at an Oldbury school
4:17pm Wednesday 25th April 2012 in Local
BRITAIN’S Got Talent runners-up Twist and Pulse dropped in on an Oldbury school to wow pupils with their dance skills and surprise winners of a design-a-logo competition.
Ashley Glazebrook and Glen Murphy – who reached the final stages of the TV talent show in 2010 – performed a 15-minute routine at Moat Farm Junior School.
The visit was organised by Sandwell United Parents as a reward for pupils who designed logos for a new education programme promoting child safety.
SUP founder Shelly Showell said the logo competition was run to boost interest in the programme amongst primary-aged children and Twist and Pulse presented the winner 11-year-old Ruman Mahal from Moat Farm and runners up Alysaa Jeanes, aged eight and Sophie Layton, aged 10, from Bleakhouse Junior School, Oldbury, with their prizes.
The Junior Police Education Group, or JPEG, is a partnership between West Midlands Police and the parents’ group, set up in the aftermath of the alleged kidnapping and sexual assault of a 10-year-old Oldbury boy last November.
The programme will teach children about stranger danger, how to stay safe on the streets, cyber bullying and internet safety.
