Students join thousands in singing a song

TATIANA Manitzky and Jasmin Antonio have been jumping out of their skins waiting to sing a song in time with 500,000 other students in Australia.

The pair was part of a sea of 250 St Stephen Lutheran College children who performed Paint Me A Song at the same time as 2100 other schools.

It was part of Music: Count Us In, an initiative that teaches children the importance of music in schools.

It's the fourth year in a row St Stephen's has participated and Tatiana, 10, was as keen as a bean.

"I practised at home twice a week," she said.

Jasmin, 9, enjoyed the challenge of singing with all-aged students.

"I liked how we sang together as a whole school," she said.

Year 7 student Peyton Trezise said bringing the school closer was a bonus.

Students practised for eight weeks and music teacher Kate Shannon said she was glad children got into the spirit of it.
