Suggestions needed: Song required for leavers service

46 replies
Found 12th Jul 2010
Every year we have quite a good leavers service for year 6 pupils, and I do a powerpoint with pictures of the children through the years at our school. They always cry... and I trhink that's a good thing... its like closure I guess. Over the last 2 years I have used Sia.. Breathe and Miley Cirrus?.. The Climb. I have lined up a couple this year.. Glee.. ( yes I know ) ... True Colours or Kelly Clarkson... Breakaway. Song needs to emotional... but doesn't have to be slow.

Any suggestions for me to try would be welcomed. Cheers

Jonb.. You can use audacity and cut/paste to the end x3, then save as 1 large MP3 (or send it over here when you find a song n i'll do it)

A bit of a golden oldie and may bore young children but I suggest Unforgettable by Nat King Cole or John Mayer with All We Ever Do Is Say Goodbye...Its lovely!
