Original Peace Song
Hello World - This original song for peace is part of a "Skype in the Classroom" project to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Goal 1 - "No Poverty" & Goal 16 - "Peace..." "Hello World" is written by the students in Mrs. Reeb's Grade 4 class at St. Louis School, Leamington, ON Canada. Thank you to the students for expressing their heartfelt hopes for bringing peace to the world. This song was written in 80 minutes. Each group came up with 2 lines for the song and then we brainstormed together on the solutions which form the bridge. These words are their message to you. This video was recorded a week later in the same time period on Feb 23, 2018. Each person had a role to play and some students are working behind the scenes. All played an important role. Written by Mrs. Reeb's Grade 4 Class and Francine Honey Filmed at St. Louis School, Leamington, ON
