A group of students from Diggers Rest Primary School have been busy remixing songs to use the power of music to connect.

During term two, ten boys from grade six have been selected to participate in a weekly DJ-Podcast program run by DJ ‘Ragz’ from Urban Movement.

Assistant principal Brad Kemp helped select the students for the program, who all requested to participate.

“We felt like we needed to connect those students in a fun and engaging environment,” Mr Kemp said.

“We’ve had a very positive response from all the students, they’re looking forward to producing [a] DJ set with their songs.”

The program is designed to engage students at a deeper level within the school community and build a stronger sense of inclusion and connectedness.

Throughout the program the students have developed a range of skills which will allow them to prepare for a life beyond primary school.
