THAMES Summer Singing Challenge!

Thank you to everyone who took part in the THAMES Summer Singing Challenge!

During these challenging times, when we’re physically isolated from friends and relatives, we wanted to bring people together through the joy of singing.

Over the last couple of months, children across Tower Hamlets have been learning four selected songs. The Singing Challenge culminated on Friday 19 June when children were encouraged to sing the songs from wherever they were – whether they were at school or at home – united with other children across the borough.

The four selected songs were particularly resonant to the current times: Vera Lynn’s We’ll Meet Again has gained newfound meaning during the pandemic and this year’s VE Day celebrations; Over the Rainbow, has become a powerful message of hope and gratitude; Happy contributed a bit of fun and positivity; and we finished off with Bring me Sunshine, the anthem for Make Music Day – an international celebration of music that took place on 21 June – connecting us with people all over the world.

We were delighted to receive photos of children singing the songs at school with their classmates, and at home via virtual assemblies, some even with costumes and props! 

Thank you to everyone who participated. We hope you enjoyed singing the songs.
