Hundreds of Rotherham children have joined forces to create a stunning musical tribute to everyone in the local education community.
The virtual performance of A Million Dreams by children from schools across the borough was the brainchild of the Rotherham Schools Improvement Service (RoSIS), based at Rotherham Council.
They wanted to say thank you to all the school staff, parents and children in Rotherham for their hard work and dedication during the pandemic – including all those who are home schooling and the many schools which have remained open every day for vulnerable children and children of key workers.
So they put out a call to our schools and asked them to share the lyrics and backing track with their communities. Families returned their videos of children performing the track, which is from the smash hit musical, The Greatest Showman, in their droves and they were mixed together into a powerful, emotional performance.
RoSIS has offered a big thank you to Adam Walker and Emma Jackson for helping to create the video, but in particular to the performers who were from Badsley Primary, Blackburn Primary, Bramley Sunnyside Junior, Brinsworth Academy, Harthill Primary, Kelford School, Kimberworth Community Primary, Kiveton Park Infant, Laughton J&I, Redscope Primary, St Mary’s Herringthorpe, Swallownest Primary, Todwick Primary and Wath Central Primary.
