Songs for children’s choir, chorus and classroom.

We Are Home Here

Many pathways, many cultures…one future to embrace.

Written from the child’s perspective, this song focuses on our sense of belonging in the place we live. Whether our ancestors have lived in this land for many generations, as with indigenous cultures, or arrived recently – this is the place we call home.

We are all
children of this land.

A rousing, melodic song for 2 part treble choir and rap solo/group. Ages 5 and older.

• For Harmony Day, Reconciliation Week
We Are Home Here - song
My primary school choir performed 'We Are Home Here' for Harmony Day celebrations. It was a huge success!! The children loved the song and parents and staff commented on the appropriateness of the lyrics. The bundle you offer made it so easy to teach the song and sing along to a great backing track.
