Why Its Of Value To Me

The choir in the video “The Hong Kong Unsung Heroes” are all Aunties who have children of their own in their home country which brings authenticity and emotion to the song and makes the points I want get over to students in my schools in a fast impactful and memorable way.

Key Points On Helpers Have Kids Too

  • Many children in International Schools are unaware their Auntie has children of her own
  • An inclusive education benefits from students accessing real life ironies which show that life is not fair but that they can make a real difference by understanding their own world and reflecting this in their everyday behaviour
  • The bullet points are clear and impactful
  • The talking heads are personal, poignant and connect
  • The chorus sums up the message and is so memorable that students sing it for days after:

If I had one wish,

It would simply be this:

I wish I could kiss you goodnight.

Bottom Line

Students love the song and it helps them quickly access the modern world oxymoron that their Aunties love them so much, but also have their own kids that they rarely see – this creates a fertile opportunity for further discussion.
