GloryLand- Lyrics

Mr Oscar has asked me to share with you the lyrics of GloryLand which you will be singing in your graduation ceremony in twelve days. A very important event: the end of primary school.

Please practise the words at home or with a friend.

Gloryland (World Cup 1994)

Gloryland, in Gloryland

You're here in Gloryland

It started with a feeling
and a dream was born in you
You hope and pray that come the day
you'll see that dream come true.
With every passing moment
you begin to understand
that you're bound for Gloryland.

With a hunger in your heart
and with fire in your soul,
with passion rising high,
you know that you can reach your goal.
Believe in what you do
and you've the strength to see it through
on the road to Gloryland.

Gloryland, in Gloryland
it's in your heart, it's in your hand.
In Gloryland, in Gloryland,
you're here in Gloryland.
This is Gloryland.

As the day gets ever closer
you are reaching for the sky.
the flames that burn inside
are the flames that never die.
When you start to believe
it's in your heart,it's in your hand.
You know, this is gloryland.

The Importance of Sleeping Well

Sleep must be important because we spend 1/3 of our lives doing it! Loss of sleep hurts attention, working memory, mood, quantitative skills, logical reasoning, and even motor dexterity.
But is sleep really doing nothing? It looks like it...our eyes are closed, our muscles are relaxed, our breathing is regular, and we do not respond to sound or light. If you take a look at what is happening inside of your brain, however, you will find quite a different situation - the brain is very active. You are doing something!
It’s possible that the reason we need to sleep is so that we can learn better. Everything we have learnt is cemented while sleeping.
Therefore, now that your are having your final exams, it is very important for you to SLEEP WELL!

Modern Foreign Languages

You will have to choose one of the following Modern Foreign Languages next year: (French, Portuguese, Mandarin). Remember the following:
As you progress through your education at school, a modern language will be of benefit to your personal and educational development in a variety of ways.
  • It will allow you to establish contact with people of your own age who speak other languages and to access information from other cultures.
  • It will help you to understand that experience of the world through another language can be just as 'real' and 'valid' as experience of the world through Spanish or English.
  • It will offer you the positive experience of developing an entirely new mode of understanding and expression.
Keep in mind that you will have to show commitment at all times throughout the learning process. Good luck in your choice!
