KOONDOOLA Primary School students are unleashing their creativity with the production of a music video.

Film maker Mat De Koning, sound editor Paul Hayes and choreographer Rachael Woodward have been collaborating with 20 years 5 and 6 students as part of AWESOME Arts’ Creative Challenge.

The 10-week program aims to help children explore and tell their stories, which they have chosen to do by producing a music video of their school song.

While the 20 children are creating the video, another 40 are involved within the choir and the whole school participated in the filming process.

School performing arts teacher Michelle Driedberg praised the program.

“This project is encouraging our students to support one another and work together as a team while celebrating friendships, education and pride in our school and community,” she said.

“The children are having fun learning the new skills involved in the filming and recording process.”

The finished video will feature at the AWESOME Festival in Perth in October.
