Warwick students find one voice

THE voices of school students were heard singing out in unison across the country yesterday when more than half a million children belted out the same tune at the same time.

Warwick Central School was one of the schools to take part in the event, much to the delight of its students and teachers.

Year 2/3 teacher Robyn Marsh said she thought the day was a great initiative and the students were excited to be a part of it.

“We did it last year and it just really captured the imagination of the students,” she said.

“The kids really loved the song this year.

"They have been practising in their weekly class music lessons for most of the year.

“It's just a great thing, it really unifies people, knowing schools all over the state and the country are singing the same song at the same time, it's really good for the district.”

The students sang a song composed especially for the occasion.

We've Got the Music was written by young musicians with the help of Thirsty Merc's Rai Thistlethwaite, earlier this year.

Count Me In was launched in 2007 to state and independent schools across the country to show the value of music education in student's development.
