Broadmeadows Developmental School students will learn to ‘sing’ using sign language in order to take part in a nationwide chorus of more than 500,000 students from kindergarten to year 12.
The Music Count Us In program is a federal government-funded initiative aimed at promoting music advocacy and participation in schools. On October 31, at 12.30pm, students at schools around the nation will sing Keep On, a song written by four students under the tutelage of singer-songwriter Katie Noonan.
Broadmeadows Developmental School teacher and music therapist Megan Steele has taught the song to students, some of whom are hearing-impaired and have learned to sing in Auslan, or Australian sign language.
