Iceland - "Is it true?"

Our contribution was chosen in Flatóvision which is a celebration similar to Eurovision held in the school in March.  Ari Ólafsson, who is going to sing the Eurovision song for Iceland in May, came to our school to help us to find the contribution for Schoolovision 2018. The song is an old Eurovision song from 2009 that wound up in the 2nd place. The students who sing the song now are 9 years old and have lived some part of their life abroad and speak English very well. Clips in the video are taken in the school in arts and crafts lessons such as music, household, textile, construction and drawing. We also took some scenes out in the lava field that surrounds the school yard. Hope you enjoy?

  1. It was very interesting to see your lessons and your English and singing are so good. I think that it is a very good idea to involve some real Eurovision persons to Schoolovision.

    Good luck!

  2. I remember this tune clearly from a few years back in the real Eurovision, so I was very happy to hear it covered again so well by you guys. I also was extremely happy to see your school once again in such detail, and I loved seeing all the interesting activities that take place.
    Excellent, high quality entry, as we have seen many times from Flataskoli!
    Good luck from Scotland.
