Hello Students!



Something really special about music is that it can bring you joy – especially in hard times. I thought it would be fun to create a *School Playlist* of songs that are “uplifting” – songs that inspire happiness and hope. Check out one of my favourite uplifting songs below as an example. This one always makes me feel like dancing! The video is below.

Click this link to send me your song online:


OR follow the steps below and email your song to me at jennifer.gaunt@education.wa.edu.au

  1. What song makes you feel happy?
    Include a) artist name b) song name c) Youtube link.
  2. Why does this song make you feel happy?
    (2 sentences)
  3. Interview an adult (in your house or over the phone).
    Ask: What song makes them feel happy?
    a) The name of the person you interviewed
    b) Song name
    c) Artist name
    d) Youtube link
  4. Why does it make them feel happy?
    (2 sentences)
  5. How do you feel about their song choice?

    1. Hi Grace, it’s good to hear from you! Are you still singing?

  2. I miss u❤️

  3. Hi Miss Gaunt! I really miss you, it’s been a long time! I just want to ask you if I could have any access to the song ‘The Future is Ours’. We used it for our 2014 graduation song. I tried it on YouTube, but it didn’t work. Is there any way of accessing to the song ‘The Future is Ours’? If you can’t search it up on YouTube, then can you tell me if there is a special link or something, and if so, I would appreciate it if you could help me access the website (if it is a website, that is) to your maximum reach.
    Thanks, Ian Lee

    1. Hi Ian, it’s great to hear from you! You can hear the choir sing the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhjV1ybVidM

      IT IS SO cool Awessome

    3. Hi Ian, nice to hear from you! The Future Is Ours was written by West Australian composer Donna Marwick-O’Brien. It’s in her book titled Something Extra Special. Unfortunately the audio itself is not easily accessible online unless you wanted to purchase the book, which can be found on a number of websites. I hope that helps!

  8. Hi Miss Gaunt
    I was just wondering when is the next performance week besides for this week because I want to play a song on my recorder but I’m at INTERSCHOOL for my music day?

    1. Hi Tahliya,
      There will be a performance week at the end of each term. Sorry you are missing this one! Perhaps you could come at another time this week and perform it for another class? If you ask your teacher then I would be happy for you to do that at a time that suits your class.

      1. Ok Miss Gaunt thanks

  9. Hi Miss Gaunt
