COVID-19: Teachers perform Take That’s Back For Good in parody video as they await students’ return to school
Written by Hitmix News on 7 March 2021
A group of teachers have filmed a parody video ahead of the return of students to classrooms on Monday.
Four teachers from The King’s School in Rochester banded together for a lockdown version of the 1995 Take That hit Back For Good.
It’s sung by school principal Ben Charles, head of the preparatory school Tom Morgan, and Catherine Openshaw, headmistress of the nursery and pre-preparatory school.
Chaplain Father Padfield also features in the video, which has been viewed over 1,000 times on YouTube.
However, the usual lyrics have been changed to reflect the current pandemic.
The trio sing: “Whatever we said, whatever we did, we’ve been through it, we just want you back for good.
“We’ve carried you along, we’ve had to be strong and we’ve done it, you’ll be right and understood.
“We’ll be together, fingers crossed now forever, we’ll be fighting and forever we will be, so complete in our hope, we will never be locked down again.”
All schools in England will reopen on Monday, as part of Boris Johnson’s four-step plan for leading the country out of lockdown and back to normality.
Outdoor after-school sports and activities will also restart.
Secondary and college pupils will be tested with lateral flow tests twice a week, receiving three initial tests at school before they start taking them at home.
