Augment & Inspire

We are excited to announce that we are partnering with the Australian Society for Music Education Inc.  (ASME) and have received Round 1 grants through the Augment and Inspire project for three songs written and produced by Bold Park Community School students.

The rationale behind the Augment and Inspire project is they believe there has been a disconnection between music education and the wealth of knowledge and experience of local musicians and music groups in Western Australia. The Augment and Inspire project calls on local musicians and music groups to submit proposals for commissioned works to be used in the music education sphere. This offers the opportunity to create new and exciting works and resources for teachers to use with their students. It allows educators to forge stronger links with the local music industry and music communities.

Bold Park Community School’s Strategic Plan 2020-2023 envisages a connected caring community that builds partnerships and connections beyond our gates. We are very pleased to be partnering with ASME through their Augment and Inspire Project and hope to continue with a second round of submissions soon.

 

The three songs selected for the project are:

  • Friendship Song
    written by the 2019 Years 1/2 class (The curious Djidi Djidi’s) lyrics were written by a student in the class, Ari, for the class, his friends.
  • The Earth, She Is Amazing
    written by the 2019 Years 1/2 class (The curious Djidi Djidi’s). This class were keen environmentalists, always looking at ways of caring for our planet and it’s resources and animals.
  • Wirin Boodja
    written by the Years 5/6 students in Term 1 this year after the class had been studying climate change and indigenous seasons. The students wanted to bring an understanding to the community regarding the indigenous seasons and climate change and through this Wirin Boodja evolved.

Danielle Joynt, Specialist Music Educator at BPCS said, “I am so proud of our students, their depth of insight and discussion around all the songs continually blows me away!”

Wirin Boodja, originally titled The Seasons of our Land, was renamed through collaboration with Neville Collard, our Noongar Elder.

For each song commissioned we are required to provide teaching points and resources that include a backing track, backing track with vocals, piano accompaniment, guitar accompaniment, vocal and instrumental score, two-part choir arrangement, lyric sheets and notes on the creation of the songs. On September 1st 2020, the entire package for each song will be available for sale to all Australian schools through ASME with the entire purchase price going to our school.

“Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before.

Creativity becomes more visible when adults try to be more attentive to the cognitive processes of children than to the results they achieve in various fields of doing and understanding.”
