The songs, a counteraction to the Fully Dunce slang, tells the story of the importance of a good education.
Only two weeks ago, the song was endorsed by the Ministry of Education in Jamaica, while over twenty schools have so far invited the Fully Bright team to their institution. These include St. John’s and Holy Rosary Primary and Kingston High and Innswood High schools.
The initiative includes at least thirty minutes during the school’s devotional exercise.
The deejay will be giving a motivational talk, along with performing his Fully Bright song. His Fully Bright dancers, Wassdemm and Anna, will add flavour to the event by teaching students how to do the dance moves.
Students will be involved in a Fully Bright talent contest in which they will present items surrounding the theme.
Fully Bright certificates will be presented for various disciplines, including behaviour, honesty and politeness, based on the school’s assessment.
The Fully Bright song is expected to be adopted by the schools.
