Stacey Soloman and Pip visit winning school in iChild's Pip Ahoy! month


As part of iChild's promotion of CHF's Pip Ahoy! show, a "Pip Ahoy! Month" was developed by Family & Education, and over 1,000 nurseries, pre-schools,and primary schools took part, with involvement from more than 70,000 children. The winning school was Gainsborough Primary School who received a visit from Stacey Soloman and Pip.

Following iChild's promotion of Pip Ahoy!, the show is now No. 1 rated.

Many children dream of meeting their favourite cartoon character, and for pupils at Gainsborough Primary School, that became a reality.

Popular Channel 5 cartoon Pip Ahoy!’s star Pip popped into their classroom, joined by television presenter and singer Stacey Solomon, who performs the show’s tune.

The duo led the school in a singalong and each class were able to ask a question to the special visitors.

Stacey said: “I was so excited to be visiting the children at Gainsborough Primary School and loved their passion for the show.

“They were so welcoming and engaging that I did not want to leave.”

The visit came after the school won a nationwide competition by iChild, which produces educational resource packs to accompany the show.

Teacher at the Berkshire Road school, Samuel Cullen, said: “The children have been so excited about Stacey and Pip visiting the school that we have had to contain their anticipation all week!

“Pip Ahoy! is a particular favourite amongst the children and we have loved using the Pip education resource packs that have been produced as part of our lessons.

“Using children’s characters is a great way of helping children to get enthusiastic about learning.”

The show follows the adventures of a mischievous pup and his friends who live in the colourful seaside town of Salty Cove, and stars Sir David Jason as the voice of Pip’s uncle.
