Scotland - Build Up

Who would have thought, way back in early 2009, that we'd be here in 2018 for the 10th edition of what has become eTwinning's most famous, longest running and most prize-winning project of all? As the project founder, I am as proud now of the project as when it began 10 years ago.
Probably even more so, as the standard of entries keeps improving each year!
For 2018, Scotland are performing the song "Build Up", a feel-good tune that encourages all of us to be kind and loving to each other.
In today's world, what can be more important than that?

Thanks go to Fischy Music for allowing us to use one of their songs for the second year running!
Best wishes to all participants, pupils and teachers, and good luck as we celebrate 10 fantastic years of Schoolovision!


  1. Thank you Michael for Schoolovision and this beautiful video. The kids are so happy and cute. I can see that they really think about the message of the song. Build up:)

    Good luck!

  2. Indeed a very catchy tune with the extra bonus for me to see again the places I had the privilege to visit last autumn.
    I think my kids will jump for joy when they get to watch your video. They'll instantly want to learn it too, just like me.

  3. Great song with a great message. We need to build up our world to destroy selfishness and hatred and fill it with love and peace.

  4. I love your catchy song and the beautiful landscape!
    You really can be proud of your young singers!!
    Good Luck from Austria!

  5. Sounds great! Well done, everyone ��
