The school has released a video of the song. 

Introducing it, one of the pupils says: ‘This week we have been learning about the importance of remembrance. As a school, remembrance is significant to us because we believe it is vital to remember, and show our respect to the soldiers who fought courageously for our country.’

Another pupil says: ‘We have learned a song which tells the story of someone who has lost a loved one in the war but is on their journey to happiness.’
