FOR the fourth year in a row the students of Central State School showed off their vocal skills and joined into this year's Music Count Us In, which sees students from around Australia all sing the same song at the same time.

Central State School music teach Jayne Shelley said music was a great way for kids to learn.
"It switches their brains on in a different way," she said.
"They really enjoy music, there are 80 students in the school choir."
Mrs Shelley said taking part in an event such as this one, helped create a sense of unity.
"It is just fun and amazing to think that over 100,000 other students were all singing the same song at the same time," she said.
"It makes them feel like they are part of something."
The students practiced this year's song Keep On for three months.
