In response to the recent events in Manchester, as a school we wanted to show our local community and the world that we choose love. A competition was set up for students to write, compose and perform an original song about our great city: Manchester. An incredible 61 students entered the competition with 18 acts and 10 acts made it through to the final, a very tough decision! The finalists performed on the last week of term to a panel of talented judges who decided the winner. The winners then recorded their song the next day in a professional recording studio, their song was then made into a CD ready to sell in September!
The songs written by our talented students were incredibly impressive, powerful and really did show the world that we choose love!
Winning song lyrics: "This is our city"
We will climb the highest mountain and get there as a team
No matter where we are, when things get tough we achieve when we believe
We are one, we are whole, we are strong, we are bold
We stay together, forever!
This is our city, where we belong, we feel welcome, we feel strong, never divided but always united.
We will rise up hand in hand, different yet the same
Nothing can come between us, we're stuck like glue
We'll be together ‘till the end
We are the voices of those who can't be heard
We are the stars at night that shine so bright
We are the sun when the clouds go by, we are Manchester Glow
