Earlier this year, our students helped their Song Room teacher, Zoe Barry, create music. The notes of the song came from a survey from the supporters of The Song Room. Each survey response was converted to a musical note, and then Zoe and our students performed the tune.
At Debney Meadows PS we are lucky to enjoy the extra support for learning by The Song Room. Our teacher is Zoe, and she works with all of our students once a week. Our students explore themes around identity and storytelling. They use their imaginations, share ideas, collaborate on song writing, sing, move and build confidence in the process.
Our Year P and 1/2 students have been using songs to think about ways they can deal with new situations, new people and being part of a group – a community. They are performing Yellow Bird on Wednesday 2nd November at Melbourne Town Hall as part of the Carnavale performance. As principal, this will be my first performance that I have the pleasure to watch. I can’t wait 🙂
Our 3/4s have had fun looking at the characters and stories in fairytales and fables and messages of dealing with challenging situations.
The 5/6 students have explored emotions through rap and blues and have worked together to create their own raps.

Thank you TSR for the great work you do with our students.
