Singing Assembly

 

Every Tuesday afternoon the whole school meets in the hall for our singing assembly. 

 

Autumn 2 songs

  • Silent Night (with British Sign Language actions)
  • All In - a song written by Aram Rubenstein-Gillis, a music teacher at Elysian Charter School, for people of all ages to

    take a stand against bullying. The song celebrates the beauty of diversity, the power of perseverance, and the importance

    of working together.
