Sir’s song for Christmas

CHILDREN at Lanesend Primary School, Cowes, have recorded a festive themed song.

Twenty-three members of the school’s Glee Club recorded Back on the Island for Christmas at Flyte Studios, Rookley.

It was written by the deputy headteacher, Dave Cooper, who said: "We had been thinking about doing a Christmas song about the Isle of Wight so I wrote some chords and words and took it into the Glee Club.

"It sounds like a traditional Christmas carol. They came up with lovely harmonies and then went down to Flyte Studios, who were so impressed they shot a free video for us.

He added: "I have played some music and been in bands when I was younger."

A video of the entire school singing the song is also on YouTube.

CDs of the song is for sale at the school and it can also be downloaded from iTunes.

Concur with everything said so far.

It is obvious that Dave is held in high regard by the kids and vice versa.

I hope that it sells well and provides funds for the school.

Congratulations to the Children, Dave and Flyte Studios - lots of fun and a great experience for all concerned. Nice to see the Primaries promoting themselves, their kids and the Island so well.
