Teachers' Green Day ditty gets toes tapping

Two teachers at St Luke’s Anglican School have created a ditty to the tune of Green Day’s Good Riddance (Time of your Life) entitled “Congratulations doing school from home”.

Mr Bigg and Mr Farthing (disguised as Turtle-Croc – Cranky the Crocodile) wrote and performed the song to thank teachers, students and parents for their hard work, patience and good humour while COVID-19 restrictions kept many students at home, completing their studies online.

The hilarious video has captured the imagination of the school community and even contains a blooper reel!

Mr Farthing said the school held green day to celebrate World Turtle Day with the students and the Green Day song came together perfectly.

“Because the school acknowledged World Turtle Day with a green day for students, our green friend Cranky the Crocodile approached Year 4 teacher Mr Chris Bigg for a Green Day collaboration,” Mr Farthing said.

“For five weeks, the Year 3 teachers have been sending out a daily video to explain the learning from home expectations, so this video was both a reflection and a thank-you to all those at home who supported us as teachers through all the high points and pitfalls.”

Green Day St Luke's
St Luke's Anglican School teachers Mr Bigg and Mr Farthing (disguised as Turtle-Croc – Cranky the Crocodile) wrote and performed the Green Day song to thank teachers, students and parents for their hard work, patience and good humour while COVID-19 restrictions kept many students at home, completing their studies online.

Mr Bigg said the video was just another way to stay connected with students, and everyone had done a great job during the COVID-19 restrictions.

“Everyone is looking forward to getting back into the routine on Monday when schools open again,” Mr Bigg said.

“Staying connected in an online world had its challenges, but students, staff and the whole school community have supported each other during online learning.”

Lyrics to Congratulations doing school from home

Another turning point when all the schools were closed

We faced some challenges that no one was to know

See saw classrooms and assembly done online

Lessons in pyjamas were totally fine

This term was unpredictable, like nothing we’ve known

Congratulations doing school at home.

A big shout out to Mums and Dads who kept you all on task

To making time to break for Mrs Russo skipping class

Watching video lessons and printing out work sheets

Helping kids to join those glitchy google meets

Parents made sure the teachers didn’t do this all alone

Thanks for supervising them at home

So welcome back to school – five long weeks it’s been

We know you’ll want to settle back in your routine

You’ll see your friends again to run and jump and play

And be the best you can and live the St Luke’s way

This term has been unpredictable, like nothing we have known

Congratulations doing school from home

Parents made sure teachers didn’t do this all alone

Congratulations doing school from home

All the St Lukes’ staff and kids were totally in the zone

Congratulations doing school from home
