70s pop idol helps give kids star quality
Published 23/09/10



CHILDREN at a Wargrave theatre school have had a song written for them by a Seventies pop star.

Kate Skellern, 36, founded the Skellern School of Speech and Drama a year ago to teach stagecraft to six- to 12-year-olds.

Ms Skellern, of Clifton Rise, Wargrave, is the daughter of Peter Skellern, 62, who had hits with Youíre A Lady and Hold On To Love more than 30 years ago. He is now retired and lives in Cornwall.

Ms Skellern said: "My dad has written a song especially for the young children who will be attending our new classes. It doesnít really have a title but we call it the hello song."

Ms Skellern is now looking to extend the school to teach pre-school children.

"I am doing this because of demand," she said. "I have had lots of enquiries from parents who want their youngest children to learn how to sing, dance and act.

"At around three or four, children are very creative and have great imaginations. I want to teach them to share their creative minds in a group."

She is married to Ben Chapman, a Radio 1 interactive editor, and the couple have two children, Louis, nine, and Nancy, five.
