Norway - Ærlighet varer lengst



Høknes school in Norway is very pleased to be a part of the Schoolovision-project. Our song "Ærlighet varer lengst" (Eng: "Honesty is the best policy") is made by students in class 5, 6 and 7 at Høknes school (both the melody and the lyrics). In the process making this song we have got a lot of help from Rock City Namsos, a resource center for pop and rock. 180 students from 5th to 7th grade have taken part in this project. The song is about being honest, and about believes in oneself, and the song says it is important to follow your dreams. We hope you like the song and the video.

Absolutely amazing!!

What can I say about this wonderful, wonderful song? You guys have not only made a top-notch quality video, but the song itself is powerful from the first moment, right to the end.

Well done Jan and team- I love it!

Best wishes from me in Scotland for the voting!

Brilliant!!!
I just love your music:) Such lovely pure voices! Very creative!
I think this is what children should be doing in free time: composing music, writing and singing songs!
Very professional, well done.
Best wishes,

This has blown me completely away, Jan. What an amazing entry!

Having watched this I am so proud of Schoolovision through which we have become able to share our creativity in such a splendid way.

Obviously, this is a brilliant and professionaly done entry. There are so many details to enjoy.

Personally, I enjoy most the light setup, the extraordinary video quality and details like the water or smoke in the background.
Very strong is also the scene in the school corridor where one girl steps aside and another takes over.

So far for the moments. Have to watch it again now.

I just recognized the similarity of your song title to the German version of this saying:
Ehrlich währt am längsten.

Hi Norway,

What a really stunning video you all made there!

The pupils in our class where really watching with eyes and mouths wide open!

A very impressive video! Knowing what time we spent making ours, one can only imagine how many work it must have been creating it!

A fantastic euro-schoolo-vision-song and I'm absolutely sure it will do very well in the voting!

Definitely one of my top-favorites!

Kind regards,

Dave from Belgium
