In 2010, the St Leonard’s ELEMENTARY children sang at The Wall concert.
The OCSB thought is was so good, that in June 2012, St Mark’s did it again with Roger Waters playing the entire Pink Floyd The Wall album. This album is one of the darkest, most nihilistic albums around. The 2012 review in the Citizen talked about the wafts of marijuana smoke throughout ScotiaBank Place. The music contains numerous swear words.
The song that St Mark’s High School sang was “We don’t need no education” to a huge evil-looking teacher mannequin. The following video shows this. The Toronto video is from a different school but shows better the darker nature of the show.
Is this in alignment with the mission of Catholic schools?? Governments are not forcing schools to sing at The Wall concerts! This is internally driven by teachers. What principal would think this is a good idea? Why would they want school-children to be exposed to such nihilism?
Also, there have been accusations of anti-semitism against Roger Waters and his use of the Star of David and “$$$” on bombs during video projections in The Wall tours.
