Students from Emerald North State School enjoyed taking part in Music: Count Us In.

AT 11.30am last Thursday students from Emerald North State School joined 1600 other schools in singing the same song at the same time.

Each year schools from around Australia take part in Music: Count Us In and perform the same song, at the same time, on the same day.

This year's song was We've got the Music and students from all grades at Emerald North gathered in the school hall to sing along.

The song was penned by 12 high school students from around the country who gathered earlier in the year for a writing workshop in Sydney, mentored by Eskimo Joe's Kav Temperley, Holly Throsby, Clare Bowditch and Thirsty Merc's Rai Thistlethwayte.

Music: Count Us In ambassador John Foreman chose the program song We've Got the Music, and vocals and instrumental tracks were recorded by students in Melbourne.
