The pupils in Rangsby skola 4th grade proudly present their entry to Schoolovision 2016: Åland – på hela jorden (The Åland Islands – around the whole world)
We live in the Åland Islands, a beautiful archipelago situated midway between Sweden and Finland. Åland is an autonomous, demilitarized (no military allowed) and Swedish-speaking region in Finland. Åland has 29 000 inhabitants, and 11 000 of them live in the only town, Mariehamn.
Music was composed specially for this occasion by Cajsa Hallbäck (the teachers 18-years old daughter). The lyric theme was chosen to be about Åland. All the pupils have indiviually described what Åland means to them and what’s unique about our island.
The conclusion of all the opinions was:
We love Åland! Our wish is that everybody around the world could be friends and live in a peaceful environment, just like we do.
And yes, Åland has its own flag as you can see in the video. We hope you’ll enjoy our video as much as we enjoyed making it J
