Tauranga school performs online musical
Staff, students and whanau from Tauranga Girls' College have joined forces to “generate spirit” amid the COVID-19 lockdown.
This week more than 100 members of the school-wide community put their dancing shoes on and filmed themselves singing High School Musicals upbeat song 'We're all in this together' from home.
The video premiered on Facebook at 8.30 this morning.
Tauranga Girls' College teacher Caroline Gill hopes the video will help lift people's spirits and help maintain a level of positivity and humour during the lockdown period.
“The hashtag #wereallinthistogether has been utilised across social media platforms throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to remind our community that we can all get through this together.
“This same message resonates with us as a school as remote learning becomes the ‘new norm’ for students, teachers, and whānau.”
She says this positive message is one they want to remind the school community.
“What better way to do this than using High School Musical’s upbeat song 'We're all in this together' - TGC styles.”
Earlier this week, student leaders at Tauranga Girls' College released a video titled ‘we’ve got this’ sharing messages promoting wellbeing to the community.
“The staff wanted to follow on from this with a positive message about the importance of supporting each other as we return to learning in a new way."
Caroline, who edited the video from home along with her twin daughters who are in Year 12 at the college, has her fingers crossed the students will enjoy watching the High School Musical rendition before they start their learning for the day.
