THANK YOU: The Academy in Bushey create special video to thank NHS 

 Published on: 22nd June 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Academy, a performing arts school based in Bushey, have shown their appreciation to NHS staff by creating a six-minute video of students, ranging from four to 17 years old, singing their rendition of “You Will Be Found”.

One of their students has been personally affected by the coronavirus after their mother and father caught it whilst one of them was working at Watford General Hospital. 

The students were eager to show their gratitude towards the frontline workers, and after some virtual lessons, they managed to pull the amazing tribute together.

Singing teacher Betty Jones organised the virtual choir and the whole school was thrilled with the result.

Amanda Finestone, the chair of The Academy, said: “It took a lot of hard work and the song is incredibly difficult to sing, but Betty did so well to tutor them online and to organise the whole thing. 

“The finished product was absolutely fantastic, and the students are really proud of themselves. It was the perfect way for the school as a whole to show our gratitude to those who are risking so much for us.”

The performing arts school also donated all their stock from their tuck shop to staff at Barnet General Hospital, with students Zara and Nate sorting through all the food and then delivering them to the hospital.

The video is available to view on YouTube by searching “The Academy Watford”.
