We are just putting the finishing touches to the song and video “This School”. It should be live tomorrow on the NUT official youtube account.
Working on “This School” has been an utter joy from start to finish. So many good, kind people have shared their talents generously. No ego’s, no agenda’s, no game playing just good old fashioned solidarity.
I am in a feverish state of excitement. I think it is good. I think it is really, really good. I know that we are never going to please everyone but my biggest hope is that it becomes a rallying call for everyone who rejects the ideological attacks on our schools.
“This School” is an anthem. It’s time to stand up.
Thank you to everyone who contributed. I’ve never been prouder to be an NUT member. To be honest I haven’t really been a very proactive union member – I’ve not helped build the local division and I’ve never been to conference. However meeting Ruth Serwotka, NUT organiser, on twitter has transformed my activism. I’m so grateful Ruth that you listened to my proposal and helped us make this a reality. Thank you Ruth for having faith in the membership! It really wouldn’t have got off the ground without you.
This song is going to make a difference.
