Students across Australia from kindergarten to Year 12 will take part in Music: Count Us In, singing the same song at 9.30am on October 31.

Music teacher Jolanda Speelman said the event, which the school has been involved in for four years, created a sense of joy and unity within the whole school community.

‘Music is so important in young children’s development as it encourages the child to express themselves in a creative way,’ she said.

‘School music programs enable an enjoyable, safe and supportive environment for participation and performance, which can be very important in boosting children’s confidence and self-esteem.’

Music is a large part of the school’s curriculum with specialist music classes, choir and the school of instrumental music program.

Keep on ” a student written song ” will be sung by students from more than 19 schools across the northern suburbs.
