Ireland - Dance Your Worries Away (A Wish for the World)

Having lived through a pandemic with school lockdowns, the children wanted to spread a positive message to the world. Their recipe for happiness is to enjoy the simple and important things in life such as having fun, spending time with friends and family, dancing and enjoying nature.
We recorded our song in November 2021 and since then the terrible conflict in Ukraine has occurred and we feel the message in our song is more important than ever.

Turkey - Fasa Fiso (Nonsense)

Hello All Dear Schoolovisioners!!!

We are very happy and excited to share our first song with you for the first time. 

You know, even today, it is obvious that there is an inequality between girls and boys. Equal rights and opportunities for girls and boys help all children fulfill their potential.

We especially have choosen the song in order to show that how FASA FİSO (NONSENSE) these prejudgements are, such as 'Boys can't do ........ or Girls can't do ........ etc.' Girls and boys have always been equal and they can do everything whatever they want to.

Let's break all the prejudgements and provide equality between two genders and sing this enjoyable and inspiring song FASA FİSOOOOO!!!

All our prayers are for Ukrainian people. We always support our great leader ATATÜRK's statement; 

Peace at home, peace in the world!!!


Girls can't nail, fasa fiso...

Boys can't cook, fasa fiso...

Girls can't play an instrument, fasa fiso...

Boys can't dance at all, fasa fiso....

O ooo o fasa fiso,

O ooo o fasa fiso,

O ooo o fasa fiso,


Girls can't laugh, fasa fiso...

Boys can't have long hair, fasa fiso....

Girls can't score a goal in a match, fasa fiso...

Boys can't cry at all, fasa fiso.. 

O ooo o fasa fiso,

O ooo o fasa fiso,

O ooo o fasa fiso,

Estonia - Uus mood (New Fashion)

This year we picked a song "Uus mood" (New Fashion) by Kustas Kikerpuu. We did it already in autumn knowing nothing about the changing world. But maybe it is good to stop for a moment and just dance and feel the freedom.

The boys are coming to the party holding drumsticks and wearing fashionable clothes. The girls are just giggling and looking at their long hair and trousers. 
Girls singing: You cannot walk me home like that. Take a mirror and look at yourself. If my mother sees you I cannot come to the party anymore. Now you follow me and bring me flowers, but look at your hair, it's not nice and fashionable. You should change it.

Special thanks to Kaspar Tambur, who helped us with the phonogram, Leon Tammel who recorded our song and Stanislav Denikin, who helped us with the video.

We hope for peace and Sláva Ukrayíni!

Croatia - Roker pravi

This year we'll present you a cheerful rock 'n roll song. The song is about a student who gets a cell phone as a gift for an excellent mark and how he was left without it when he received a bad mark. Cheerful singers and dancers are from second, third and fourth grade, and big musicians from eighth grade.

France - ensemble

Hello Schoolovisioners!
Here is the French entry for the 2022 Schoolovision song contest :)
We chose this song called "ensemble" because it is about all we can do when we do it together: how we can change life, change the world and make it better.
We hope you will like it!

Israel - Another Day Has Passed

The song was written by eight-year-old Ariel Oppenheimer, from a heart that mourns the death of her beloved aunt. The child deals with loss, grief and pain while facing challenges alongside optimism. The song is dedicated to all children and their loved ones.

Italy - Un paese bellissimo (a beautiful Country)

Hello everyone. Here is our entry. It is a simple song but full of hope because every child deserves a happy childhood. Enjoy our song and good luck everyone!

Bulgaria - Kite

This is our first participation with a song in Schoolovision.
The students in the class chose the song Kite, it is studied in music lessons. They wanted to prepare the video themselves and I agreed. Miroslava managed to arrange the video and Stefan, Elena and Nikola helped her. What could be better than having fun while creating? Considering the situation in Ukraine, with our song we express the message that all children's kites should be able to fly freely in the sky!

Lithuania - White lilies

White lilies have weaved under the windows

Two little children are standing under the whitest lilies

One child is white, another is green

Looking at each other they are asking the stars:

Who planted small potatoes?
Who sowed the lilies?
Who sowed the lakes?
Who lives behind the mountains?
Who lives in the sky?
Who lives under the ground?
Who lives in the stars?
Where are we going this evening?
Where are we going tomorrow?
Where will we be when we are old?
Where will we be in a hundred years?

Norway - Everyone deserves to be noticed

Everyone deserves to be noticed. This song is about just that; how important it is to really see the people around us. To look them in the eye, give them a smile and maybe ask them how they are or if they want to come and play. No one should feel invisible and it is everyone's responsibility to do something about that. And think that one person can make a whole lot of difference in someone's day - just by noticing them and saying hello!

We hope this song will inspire both children and grown-ups to be inclusive, warm and generous to the people around us.

Best of luck!

Malta - Music Never Dies (Mużika, Mużika Int Ma Tmut Qatt)

Since war started in Ukraine, we have never stopped thinking and praying for them every day. This is something so special about Schoolovision, because we have become one large family with all members loving and caring for one another. Stay safe Ukraine. We are with you always. Our song this year talks about music, a language which has no borders and which connects nations and people together. Music never, never dies. No matter how bad you feel, music is always the best medicine to make you feel happy again. Music is truly a bridge between heaven and earth and without it, life would B♭.

The Czech Republic - Volní jako ptáci

Free as birds
We composed our own song with the children /8 years old/ called Free as birds. It  is a fast, rhythmic, melodic song with European greetings. The song is about international friendship  and we can already practice normally in the our school after the pandemic. We feel also sad about the situation in Ukraine. A girl from Ukraine, who also sings in a video clip, goes to our class. Here are the lyrics:


Let's be glad we're together. Life flows up and down.

Ahoj, Hello, Privit, Hallo, Alo, Salut, Hei ,Ciao….

Refrén česky:

Buďme rádi, že jsme spolu, život plyne nahoru i dolů.

Ahoj, Hello, Privit, Hallo, Alo, Salut, Hei ,Ciao….

The author of the music:  Veronika Nováková.

Greetings from the Czech Republic

Sweden - Fantasivärld (Fantasy world)

The song came about through a collaboration between two classes at the school. The students produced the text together where everyone got to be involved and decide.
The text is about a fantasy world, a world where everyone is allowed to participate and no one is left out. A thought that is very relevant precisely in view of what is happening in the world right now.

Music written by Sabrina Do Rosario Cristo.

Slovakia - Bugaboo (Strašidlo)

If you are also afraid of the bugaboos that lurk under your bed at night and don't let you fall asleep in peace, watch this video of our brave children who already know that bugaboos can be a lot of fun. However, don't watch telly or streams too much!


Dear friends, Schoolovision returns for yet another year and the students of CEIP Elvira Vaquero, from Valsequillo in Gran Canaria, are very excited to be able to represent Spain again, from the autonomous community of the Canary Islands, and we want to do so on this occasion singing to Europe how important happiness is and inviting them to discover our paradise.

This video that is presented has been made for Schoolovision 2022, in different corners of our island.
The students of primary of the CEIP Elvira Vaquero have been the true protagonists of this project from the first moment, they have chosen  the song to represent in this edition of the festival.

The boys and girls have wanted to make a small ensemble of three songs, combining the tradition of our islands, modern music and feelings of joy and happiness.

At the beginning of the video, we can hear sounds that transport us to the beautiful island, the sister island of La Palma, through the Danza de los Enanos. Then the boys and girls sing to the island where they live, "My paradise", to the identity of the Canary Islands and end up singing to Happiness.
With the first song that sounds, Danza de los Enanos, we wanted to pay a small tribute to our sister island of La Palma, the beautiful island, which has recently experienced a historic moment with the eruption of the volcano Cumbre Vieja, on September 19, 2021, and which in turn has left various collateral damage on the population of the island.
With the second song, "My paradise", we want to make known that we live in an archipelago, in the middle of the Atlantic, where the sun always rises and where people love each other, where you knock on the door and they open your heart, where the smell comes from the sea, surrounded by good people, beach, sun and good atmosphere and with this video we invite all the boys and girls of Europe to get to know our paradise. And to finish, we sing to a small and transparent thing, she is like a goddess, divine and capricious, but very necessary, something that sometimes costs us so much or we forget about her, that we have her very close, but sometimes we do not see her and that after the times lived, we have to shout to the world “yes to happiness!”. We end up singing to happiness and with that message, we want to offer all our encouragement and support to the country of Ukraine. Long live happiness, some have so much, so much that they have nothing, HAPPINESS!

England - Attention! Attention!

The children in Year 4 have written and recorded Mayflower's Schoolovision entry this year. We are a Rights Respecting School, and our song is about the importance of us all understanding the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
If you want to sing along with us - here are the lyrics:


Attention! Attention! (Children's rights!)
There's a children's convention (We got rights!)
United Nations compiled (Give us rights!)
It's for the rights of a child (We got rights!)

1. We deserve good information, Every child from every nation
Internet, radio and TV (Give information! Give information!)
Other sources that won't harm us, Give us light and not much darkness
So we can live happily

2. If I am a refugee, The government should rescue me
And take me to a safe place (Take me to a safe place! Take me to a safe place!)
Please be bright, give me the light, Give me protection day and night
And put a smile on my face


3. We have the right to a choice, Big or small have a voice
Grown up "Listen to US!" (Listen to us! Listen to us!)
Listen to us seriously, Boys and girls, you and me
Not everyone does


4. We have the right to good food, If it's boiled, baked or stewed
We need water to drink (Give us a drink, yeh! Give us a drink, yeh!)
Keep our teeth clean and white, Keep us healthy and bright
Information! We think

5. Governments should spread the word, So each person can be heard
And they should know children's rights (Gimme the rights!  Gimme the rights!)
Children, adults, they should listen, This convention it should glisten
And we should all see the light


6. We have the right to a school, So we can learn to be cool
And the school should be free! (School is free! School is free!)
Encouraging the highest grades, So new Professors can be made
So you'll be just like me!

**CHORUS** x2

Poland - Taki sen (Such a dream)

The song "Such a dream" is the result of 4 days hip-hop workshops in our school. More than 60 students took part in 3 activities such as: rap creating, beatbox and djing.

Austria - Go Dolphins!

Dear friends,
also this year the "dolphin class" of the Primary- School Wildbach presents their song.
It is about the life of the dolphins - their good social behavior but also about the dangers they are exposed to. Let's treat our environment with care and protect our nature!


Who is that swimming in the water? Who jumps in the air?
Do you hear a splash somewhere - no fear and no fear!
We are the dolphins. We keep laughing.
Together - that's our magic word.


Go Dolphins! We stick together.
Go Dolphins! All our lives!
Go Dolphins! Is anyone in danger?
Go Dolphins! Will there be a lot of fins soon?
Remember one thing: we have fins, no hands, no foot.
And if we had tentacles then we were an octopus.
We face everyone bravely, killer whale and great white shark.
None of us swim alone, everyone is there.
Recently on the hunt for tuna did we find something?
A net hung deep in the water that keeps our friend captive.
He swam forward, he swam backward -  need filled his face.
We shed some tears but you can't see it in the water...
Go Dolphins!
We stand together here
Go Dolphins!
We all peer to peer
Go Dolphins!
If somebody’s afraid
Go Dolphins
There’s a flipper near to aid.

Finland - Kesäaamu (Summer morning)

Kurittula school is very happy to represent Finland in the 2022 contest! This year we were going to prepare something easy and simple. We intended to focus on children’s beautiful singing and introducing the stunning nature of Finland. Our song tells about summer morning. The children are singing beautifully, but the spring has been very late. That´s why we couldn´t make the video as we had planned. It was snowing day after day and the weather stayed cold. This spring has taught us that you can´t prepare for everything that might come your way. Our worries about prolonged winter are, however, outweighed by our concern about what has happened and what is still happening in Europe. Let´s take care of each other and let the music bring joy to all of us!

English lyrics (Translation by Pauliina Kaksonen)

The summer morning is opening quietly, cautiously. 

Birdsong carries you until awakening. 

The summer morning makes you laugh in a tiny way. 

Morning joy starts a strawberry filled holiday!

:,: So, I set off towards the root of the wind, 

towards the big secret of cow parsley. :,: 

The summer morning is waving at a daisy, 

a swallow, a birch, the summer wanderer.

The summer morning lights up a spider web, 

trails in a pine forest, the dreamer’s route.

:,: So, I set off in the direction of the smell of a forest, 

the sway of a bellflower, the scurrying of ants. :,:

Ukraine - In the Meadow, a Red Kalyna

A terrible war came to our houses and our schools. We are studying remotely, many students have fled the country and there are a lot of refugees. Having had an online discussion with kids and their parents we agreed that our entry would be a tiny contribution to the victory of Ukraine.
It was difficult to gather together because of the frequent air raid sirens but due to a great unity of teachers, children and their parents it became possible to make up our clip, trying not to show the atrocities of war but friendly Ukrainians who live in peace with their neighbors, ready to defend their motherland.
We had been happy students and teachers before the 24th of February 2022. According to the statistics 773 schools and kindergartens in Ukraine have been damaged by shelling, 75 of which have been completely destroyed, 183 children were killed and 342 wounded, 30% of the students of our gymnasia fled Ukraine. Our school is lucky not to be bombarded but the war is not over yet. Let’s stop this war together!

In the meadow, a red kalyna
In the meadow, there a red kalyna, has bent down low,
For some reason, our glorious Ukraine, has been worried so.
And we'll take that red kalyna and we will raise it up,
And we, our glorious Ukraine, shall, hey - hey, cheer up - and rejoice!
Do not bend low, Oh, red kalyna, you have a white flower.
Do not worry, glorious Ukraine, you have a free people.
And we'll take that red kalyna and will raise it up,
And we, our glorious Ukraine, shall, hey - hey, cheer up - and rejoice!
Marching forward, our fellow volunteers, into a bloody fray,
For to free, our brothers – Ukrainians, from hostile chains,
And we, our brother - Ukrainians, we will then liberate,
And we, our glorious Ukraine, shall, hey - hey, cheer up - and rejoice!
 When the stormy winds blow forth from the wide steppes,
They will glorify, throughout Ukraine, the Sich riflemen.
And we'll take the glory of the riflemen preserving it,
And we, our glorious Ukraine, shall, hey - hey, cheer up - and rejoice!

Cyprus - Irene (Peace)

We are proud to present our song PEACE, which was written by us with the help of our teachers and composed by our Music teacher, Mr Nikos Vichas. Like all the partners in Schoolovision, we also feel so sad and terrified by the terrible time people in Ukraine experience. So, we decided to express our feelings and wrote a song about PEACE on Earth where everyone enjoys freedom.

Here is the translation of the lyrics:


Peace come, love come

Peace come, come on Earth

Peace come, love come

Peace come upon all the earth

The world will celebrate with peace and love

And a white dove is waiting in its nest

To spread the wings and let the clouds away

The blue sky will shine bright 

The children look for you and  sing for you

Hand in hand all on earth our peace will come

Peace come, love come

Peace come, come on Earth

Peace come, love come

Peace come upon all the earth
