Don't Worry, Be Happy!

Allerton Grange staff have recorded two versions of Don't Worry Be Happy to hopefully raise some smiles.

‘Don’t Worry Be Happy’ is about being happy in your own way, rather than ‘putting on a fake smile and pretend to be happy’, it’s actually all about being happy in your life no matter what situation you are in. We are all in a very different situation at the moment, one that we have had to adapt to quickly. This song has been chosen for staff at Allerton Grange to perform to try and bring some smiles and comfort in knowing that we will all be here waiting for you when we return to school.

The DAHIT Team perform their version during Deaf Awareness Week.

The AGS Team share the message Don't Worry Be Happy!

And, in case you missed it, here is Mrs Casey's Three Little Birds performance from last week.

We hope you enjoy them!
