National Centre of Excellence for School (Assembly) Songs

It is proposed that there be a National Centre of Excellence for School (Assembly) Songs.  The Centre can be based in any institution (e.g., a local education authority or broadcasting organisation) that wants every school to have its own song and understands that such songs give joy as well as encouraging social cohesion and the perpetuation of society’s main values.

For ease of administration and in accordance with major social and charitable purpose, copyright to the songs would be transferred to the Centre.

In the UK there are 16,000 primary schools, 3,100 secondary schools and 150 local authorities.

English-speaking institutions around the world may also wish to have songs.
