In June, children from Crowland Primary school took part in an inspiring project, Everybody Dreams LDN, with Gladesmore. This week, during assembly, we all got to watch the final product of all the hard work of various students and artists. You can watch it here.
School children from all over London have come together to make the single: Everybody Dreams LDN, to show #thereisloveinmyhometown.
There have been a lot of negative stories coming out of London recently: knife crime, inner city gang culture, terrorism, the Grenfell Tower fire, young men dying in police custody but amidst all the sorrow and pain, there have been stories of love and hope.
The song is dedicated to the families and loved ones of the lives that have been senselessly taken… and to the young people of London, whose duty it is to make a difference.
Gladesmore School worked with 15 the London schools on this amazing experience: Aldersbrook Primary, Chobham Academy, Crowland Primary, Earlsmead Primary, Fortismere school, Galliards Primary, Highgate school, Seven Sisters Primary, St Mary’s Juniors, St Pauls and All Hallows Primary, St Pauls with St Michaels Primary, St Scolastica Primary, Tyssen Primary, Urswick school and West Green Primary. Along with special guest double Mobo Award Winner Guvna B.
The video is now online so Stage 1 of our campaign has begun. A large number of Celebrities have been supporting the song including Simon Cowell, Boris Johnson and Tottenham MP David Lammy.
The children would like everyone to share the love and share, share, share the video to all of your contacts, family and friends. The children would love to hit 100k views by the end of the academic year.
You can find the video on YouTube, just type in Everybody Dreams LDN 2017 or #song4london, just copy the link and share.
The children have amazing throughout the whole process. This is active Citizenship at it’s best. Students engaging in their community and positively doing something to make a difference or influence change.
There is currently a Flash Mob dance performance in London to the song planned and a Guiness World Record attempt of 2k Voices singing the song.
