Creating a music video, which has already been viewed more than 2,500 times since it was uploaded to YouTube on April 27, was the idea of Year 3 teacher and music lead Sharon Turner.

Contributions for the video came from senior management, teachers, teaching assistants, kitchen and office staff, midday supervisors and even the school’s caretaker.
