Traditional Song: Australia
2KM and 2KJ loved hearing a traditional American song and we’d like to share an Australian song.
Slim Dusty (David Gordon Kirkpatrick 1927 – 2003) made this song famous and many incorrectly believe he wrote it. G’day G’day was actually written by Rob Fairbairn. It is a fun song that people have been singing for decades.
Here is 2KM and 2KJ performing the song for you.
Here are the lyrics so you can sing along.
Do you know what these words/phrases mean?
Strike a light
Havin’ a yarn
Are there any other words/terms that you need us to define for you?
What do you think of our Aussie song?

Haere Mai B4′s song is a song of welcome. We sing it each week at assembly, and to welcome special visitors to our school. What do you think ‘Haere Mai’ means? Can you find the words for ‘boy’ and ‘girl’?

Yesterday, 2KM and 2KJ read a comment from Mrs Watson’s class about potato chip flavours. The students in 2KM and 2KJ got talking about flavours, and noted that a new flavour has hit the shelves in Australia. Today, Andrew from 2KM brought in a packet to show everyone. Can you tell what these chips are? More >
