More than 560 students from across the Goulburn Valley attended the third annual InterHarmony Festival at Eastbank yesterday.

Hosted by The Song Room, students from the 10 attending schools came together to sing, dance and perform.

Opening with a welcome to country performed by Bourchier St Primary School students, the festival showcased musical numbers students had been rehearsing in fortnightly sessions.

The festival ended with a performance by Melbourne-based band Prophets.

Tongala Primary School teacher Nikki Thorne said The Song Room had boosted students’ confidence levels.

‘‘It’s given the students the opportunity to participate in a high-quality music program,’’ she said. ‘‘It’s definitely sparked an interest in music and dance (in kids).’’

The Song Room program manager Lena Mitchell said the program aimed to provide students with access to music and the arts to improve social, emotional and educational outcomes.
