The teachers decided to film their own Mannequin Challenge after extremely successful posts on Facebook of several primary school classes.

Indeed Mrs Malone’s P4 class’ Mannequin Challenge Facebook post receive almost 5000 views in 24 hours.

St Francis said some of their staff decided that they would mount their own ‘challenge’ and try to do even better.
