Music, Count Us In

One Song, Your School, More Music

Celebrating the benefits of music education in Australian Schools

‘Music: Count Us In’ is on again!!

29th October at 12:30

It’s Australia’s biggest school initiative. With support from The Australian Government, it has run since 2007 and is all about celebrating the value of music education to students’ development, whoever they are, wherever they are.
It involves more than 600,000 students, teachers – and parents too – from schools all over Australia who sign up to learn, rehearse, then perform the same song, on the same day, at the same time.

Music: Count Us In is for all schools – primary and secondary, State and independent, nationwide.

At LLPS we all gather for the count down in our new gymnasium. We sing along with the choir and we add joy to our day.

Just think, all the schools in Lara, Geelong, Victoria and Australia have stopped their lessons  to experience a little bit of happiness….all AT THE SAME TIME!


The song writer mentor for Music, Count Us In, 2015 was Marcia Hines

Marcia worked with 5 talented students and Program Ambassador, John Foreman, to write this year’s song.
