Swanage Primary Students Compose Songs

During the autumn term, Years 5 and 6 have been working together, with award-winning composer David Fawcett, to write lyrics and compose music for two new songs.  Year 5 used our school motto – Be loving and truthful – and the Gospel values as themes for their lyrics while year 6 used Pope Francis’ letter to the world, Laudato Si, as their inspiration.  Both songs were premiered at our Carol Service and it is hope that they will be used in the worship life of the school for many years to come.
