Centralian College rappers win top prize

 

It's fun, moving, full of optimism and high energy: a video clip made by Year 11 Indigenous students at Centralian College has won a national competition, earning $15,000 for their school. As with all the high schools in the CREATivE CHANGE competition, they based their entry on the Warumpi Band’s Blackfella/Whitefella, developing an original rap and using Garage Band to create their own backing track. The lyrics are simple but meaningful: "We're singing together / we're making life better  ... We are all one mob / we all need an education / we all need a job / across this great nation ... " KIERAN FINNANE reports.

 

Pictured: Among the students involved in the clip are (from front) Ashley, Lavina, Lemona and Shania.
