The Music: Count Us In 2019 Program Song, ‘We Are’ (written by school students and mentor Jack River in May) was released in early July along with a set of 10 lessons plans for teachers and school ensemble arrangements. Schools and teachers can access the song and all of the resources completely FREE.
There has been a great response to the song with comments from students on social media including:
“I love it!!! Love the male lead, the harmonies, definitely will be a hit!!”
“THIS IS INCREDIBLE!!!!”
“THIS IS LIKE THE BEST FROM NOW IM SO EXCITED”
“I love music count us in!”
MCUI 2019 Professional Development sessions for teachers will be held in all states and territories throughout July and August with many sessions livestreamed or filmed to ensure teachers in all locations are able to benefit. Further resources, including Auslan and Indigenous Language translations, will be available to registered teachers in August.
Over half a million students will join forces around Australia to sing ‘We Are’ as part of the MCUI 2019 Celebration Day on 7 November 2019.
