A UAE Student's Song to the Covid-19 Affected

As parents, our whole team share your alarm, just as we also share your hope and inspiration in our own children, and those we have met in our role as the source of education news and school reviews.

In October of last year, year we hosted our annual "Young Musician of the Year competition" in the UAE. One of our very talented finalists, Emily, has joined with us today to share a message of hope from the youth of the UAE with her recording of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".

Emily sings beautifully in English, but we would love to hear this popular song sung in your mother tongue.  If you would like to record this song in and share with us, please email editor@whichschooladvisor.com

All over the world, children and young people have united under the message ‘Keep up the Fight’. For children in China, where the movement originated, the message is “Jiayou”.

When Covid-19 began to take hold in Italy, Chinese children and young people passed on this slogan of positivity to their counterparts in Lombardy and then across the country. Today, all around Italy, the words “andra tutto bene” (all will be well) now accompanies beautiful rainbow drawings made by children to brighten their locked down neighbourhoods, and to give hope to anyone who sees them.

Jiayou. Andra tutto bene. Keep up the fight.

Please enjoy this moment of musical hope, positivity and worldwide connection from Emily and all of the WhichSchoolAdvisor.com team.

Thank you Emily, for your song...
