Default Very poignant Leavers song

Have been feeling a little up and down lately as we are off to Perth in 6 weeks time. My eldest who is nearly 8 is due to move up to the middle school in Sepetember, obviously he won't and some children move on to other schools due to catchment e.t.c .
I got home the other day and this song was on the fridge. I must admit I was very choked and did cry, not just because of this but because of many reasons.I have been through a lot and admit to being very emotional these days.
Although a few words relate to school they are easily identified with anyone who is emigrating and the song is extremely fitting. Some of you would have heard the song already but for those who have not here it is . I think the song is great and we should feel positive about the song as people do move in real life and this is a great way to understand it:

Leaver's song ( Out of the ark music 2002):


So now its time to say goodbye
to our friends, moving on
and after many years of being here
we'll be sad, when their gone

(chorus)
This is our leavers song
we're proud of what you've done
so many happy times we've had
so many songs we've sung
This is our leavers song
we're proud of what you've done
go from here with confidence
for all the things to come

So keep in mind those special times
that we've shared, here with you
and may the lessons learned through many terms
with your friends, stay with you

Chorus

So take good care and dont be scared
as you go, out from here
because theres so much more in store for you
as you grow, through the years

Chorus

James
