Music Count Us In


Caningeraba again joined over half a million other children across Australia and overseas to sing "Paint You A Song." The song was sung at exactly 11:30 a.m. on Thursday 30th October, 2014.  At Caningeraba the music was provided by the Year 7 ensemble from the Concert Band, the Year 6 string ensemble, the combined recorder ensemble, Junior and Senior Choir members and nine teaching staff.​

'Music Count Us In' began eight years ago initiated by the Music Council of Australia, who are passionately involved in promoting the importance of music in every child's education.

Each year, a group of high school students are selected to write the 'song' that will reflect the power, passion, the private and the public perception of the role music plays in our society.

Music is to the brain, what exercise is to the body. It stimulates the mind and spirit as almost no other activity can.
