Moira PS kids give Uptown Funk a makeover

Top single Uptown Funk by superstars Bruno Mars and Marc Ronson has had a makeover by Moira Primary School pupils and already it is getting a lot of hits.

Primary six pupils were at Ardnabannon Outdoor Education Centre this week and teachers Malcolm McNeill, Shirley King and Julian Gray choreographed and filmed the children with their version of the top selling single.

The children had spent three days at the outdoor pursuits centre taking part in canoeing and other activities.

And for their finale they decided to make a music video.

Uptown Funk is number two in the UK charts and is top of the American Billboard charts.

Principal Carol Mairs said: “It’s been a great experience for the children. The children and staff are very creative and the parents really enjoy it.”

Recently more and more creative and educational videos have been posted on the Moira Primary School Facebook site and Ms Mairs said: “It is a very controlled Facebook page and all the posts have been very popular.

“The children have had a ball,” she said.
