Territory students Rock Da Caz for Music: Count Us In

Over 400 students from 36 schools packed Casuarina Square’s food court on Thursday to perform in this year’s ‘Rock Da Caz’ – Darwin's Music: Count Us In event.

Now in its tenth year, Music: Count Us In is a national initiative that encourages principals and teachers to grow music education in their schools.

Across the Northern Territory, 65 schools participated in Music: Count Us In, including ‘Rock Da Caz’, a combined performance in Alice Springs and various in-school concerts.

For the first time in the program’s history, the song was translated into various Indigenous languages in schools across the Territory including Yuendumu, Bulman and Gunbalanya schools, in collaboration with Arts Empower Foundation Limited.

Music: Count Us In is Australia’s largest school music advocacy and participation program.
