This Girl Can, by Hasting Hill Academy

Don’t tell us that we cannot
The W.R.A.F are coming in hot
You sit upon your golden throne
But all the while the bombs are thrown
We can do whatever the boys can do!

Yeah we can do whatever the boys can do!
The W.R.A.F is coming for you!
We’re going to prove the papers wrong
We’ll fight so brave and sing our song
The W.R.A.F is coming for you! 

The girls who are up in the sky
Fight just as hard as fly as high
Fighting fit and ready to go
We’ll make sure everybody knows
That we can do whatever the boys can do! 

Hasting Hill Academy singing This Girl Can at the 2017/18 Awards Ceremony. Sixth months later they sang again at Buckingham Palace!

'This Girl Can' was written in a workshop facilitated by Never Such Innocence Artist in Residence Marty Longstaff, and was inspired by the formation of the Women's Royal Air Force in 1918 - see page 71 of the Fourth Edition resource for more!

After winning First Place in the Song Competition for ages 9-11, Hasting Hill Academy travelled to Buckingham Palace to perform their song as part of the NSI Centenary Finale Tea Party!
