Last Wednesday on the 21st August, our grade 5 students were treated to an inspiring incursion by Indigenous Australian singer, Isaiah Firebrace.
Isaiah won X-Factor in 2016 and represented Australia in Eurovision in 2017. The students enjoyed hearing Isaiah speak to them about the importance of following your dreams, being brave and never giving up. The students then did a fantastic performance while singing his latest song, ‘Spirit’ with Isaiah before getting the opportunity to ask him some questions!
Some of which included, ‘What AFL team do you go for?’, ‘What’s your favourite song you have written?’ ‘Did you always know you wanted to be a singer?’
The students have been welcome to sing the song, ‘Spirit’ on stage with Isaiah this Sunday at the Darebin council First Nations event.
