How to enter the competitions
We have launched two singing competitions for primary and secondary schools on the theme of EU values. You can interpret this theme broadly. EU values include solidarity, democracy, non-discrimination, equality, diversity, unity, freedom, human rights, justice and many others. All those values are often very similar to those implemented in a school or sports environment. Please feel free to draw parallels, use metaphors and let the children use their creativity when it comes to the lyrics.
For primary schools
The tune is from 'Shut up and dance' by Walk the Moon. For the occasion, we are rename it 'Get up and dance'. You can find the tune on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUv7sO0Z9oA
You can slow down the tune if you wish and keep the chorus which seems quite appropriate if you assume that Ireland is 'she'.
Oh don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me
I said you're holding back
She said get up and dance with me
This club is my destiny
She said oh oh oh
Get up and dance with me
