Music is renowned for bringing people closer together, being entertained by famous lyrics and sharing in a love of the craft.
So, it’s no surprise that many of us have turned to music during the current lockdown – I know my Spotify has certainly gotten a workout over the past few weeks!
Narrabri High School has made the most of music, harnessing its magic while students continue to learn from home.
On Saturday, August 28, Play Music on the Porch Day was celebrated all over the world, right across Australia and into our own backyards.
The occasion is always celebrated on the final Saturday of August, with Narrabri High School jumping on the bandwagon this year to share their talents from home.
Led by passionate music teacher, Stephen Bailey, musical students moved their instruments outside and played under the sun – you might’ve even been lucky enough to hear a melodic clarinet or guitar solo from your house.
Alexander Mison, Elsie Ford, Jobe O’Regan and Taryn Kirk are some of the keen students who participated on the day.
Mr Bailey was joined by a ‘Von Trapp family’-style accompaniment, his young children Levi, Jonah and Iris.
