School Choir

The St Andrew's School Choir is open to all children in KS2 (Years 3-6).  Rehearsals take place on Thursday lunchtimes in the school hall.  The choir is led by Mrs Faye and Louise Graham.  We have lots of opportunities to perform this year, so come along and get singing!

Harvest Festival

 

Here are the words and a YouTube video of our harvest song:  Look at the World by John Rutter.  We are not singing the whole song, but the clip will help you to practise and learn those words at home :)

 

Look at the world: Everything all around us
Look at the world: and marvel everyday
Look at the world: So many joys and wonders
So many miracles along our way


Praise to thee o lord for all creation
Give us thankful hearts that we may see
All the gifts we share and every blessing
All things come of thee


Look at the earth: Bringing forth fruit and flower
Look at the sky: The sunshine and the rain
Look at the hills, look at the trees and mountains
Valley and flowing river field and plain


Praise to thee o lord for all creation
Give us thankful hearts that we may see
All the gifts we share and every blessing
All things come of thee


Think of the spring, Think of the warmth of summer
Bringing the harvest before the winters cold
Everything grows, everything has a season
Til' it is gathered to the fathers fold


Praise to thee o lord for all creation
Give us thankful hearts that we may see
All the gifts we share and every blessing
All things come of thee.

Someone So Poor - accompaniment

Someone So Poor

 

A poor man waiting for his fortune,

Waiting for his world to end.

Whistling his made up tune,

Will his heart ever mend?

 

But how can we help someone so poor?

With all our wordly goods, we could give him more.

We could give him more.

 

A lady sleeping on some sacking,

Dreaming of a different life.

Lacking in her broken world,

Any love, hope or joy.

 

But how can we help someone so poor?

With all our wordly goods, we could give her more.

We could give her more.

 

A rich man sitting in his front room,

Looking at the falling snow.

Comfortable by his fire,

Does he see, does he know?

 

And when will he help the waiting poor?

With all his wordly goods, he could give them more.

He could give them more.

Give them more.

 

Azikatale

 

Azikatale nomase boshwa

Sise misele nkule koh.

Azikatale nomase boshwa

Sise misele nkule koh.

 

Unzima, lom twalo

Ufuna ma doh da.

Unzima, lom twalo

Ufuna ma doh da.

 

Tina bantwan base Africa

Sise misele nkule koh.

Tina bantwan base Africa

Sise misele nkule koh.

 

Unzima, lom twalo

Ufuna ma doh da.

Unzima, lom twalo

Ufuna ma doh da.

 

We are the children of Africa,

And it’s for freedom that we are fighting now.

We are the children of Africa,

And it’s for freedom that we are fighting now.

 

A heavy load, a heavy load,

It’s gonna take some real strength.

A heavy load, a heavy load,

It’s gonna take some real strength.

Child of Tomorrow

 

Here in the wasteland

A small flower is growing.

Its life seems so fragile

Its beauty so rare.

A lonely survivor,

Amid man’s destruction.

A hope for the future,

A dream we all share.

 

 

Will you be wiser, oh child of tomorrow?

Will you remember the price that we paid?

How will you cherish this earth which we leave you?

What will you learn from the child of today?

 

Lost mid the ruins,

Two children are hiding.

Beneath broken windows,

They play with a gun.

Surrounded by soldiers,

Their city is dying.

The world turns it back,

And the conflict goes on.

 

Will you be wiser, oh child of tomorrow?

Will you remember the price that we paid?

How will you cherish this earth which we leave you?

What will you learn from the child of today?

 

Still now and silent,

A baby is lying.

Too weak now for crying,

Too hungry to care.

Beside him his mother,

Is watching and waiting.

How many must die while the world learns to share?

 

Will you be wiser, oh child of tomorrow?

Will you remember the price that we paid?

How will you cherish this earth which we leave you?

What will you learn from the child of today?
