"The concert was awesome! The kids can't stop telling me how much fun they had. They LOVED singing with Norman (it was so much fun to watch the joy on their faces during the concert!!) and they loved his sense of humor.

I don't think there was one person that was not engaged (audience included!). Even my principal and VP said that it was one of the most enjoyable concerts they've ever been to!

Final Notes and Report from Signal Hill’s

2017 Outreach Residency

Partially funded by Arts Start




Project Delivery










The project proposed to be an energetic, ambitious, and uplifting process which aimed to inspire confidence in our students and provide them with the skills and inspiration to write a school anthem.


In practice the songwriting became a much more personal process for each group and many classes created their own song, as well as contributing to a school wide song. The older grade groupings also developed a second school song which was taken on and learnt by the intermediate grades.


1. The goal of the project was to develop our students’ sense of pride, unity, cultural identity and individual uniqueness. This was achieved by initially learning songs detailing positive personal reinforcements (“You’ve got to be Yourself”), reinforcing self-love (“Love my New Shirt”).


The process of singing as a group reinforced the process of working together and uniting the classrooms. The students gained confidence when learning the movements to songs, remembering lyrics and singing together. Each classroom discussed what Signal Hill meant to them, using the school code of conduct and core message of C.A.R.E (courage, acceptance, respect, excellence) as a basis for the song’s attitude. Further conversations were had to establish the students’ idea of what Pemberton is to them, and what they represent to the school and community. These became the basis for the school songs.
