‘Music. Count Us In’ is managed by Music. Play for Life, the Music Council
of Australia’s grassroots campaign to get more Australians making music: in schools, communities, everywhere.
It’s Australia’s biggest school initiative. With support from The Australian Government, it has run since 2007 and is all about celebrating the value of music education to students’ development, whoever they are, wherever they are. It involves students and teachers from schools all over Australia who sign up to learn, rehearse, then perform the same song, on the same day, at the same time. Find out more about the program and the song they sang.

Astronomer Ken Freeman is awarded the Prime Minister's Prize for Science for his discoveries starting in 1970 on dark matter which changed the way we view galaxies and the universe. Professor Freeman of Australian National University has almost 50 years work in this area - the formation and dynamics of galaxies and globular clusters, and particularly in the problem of dark matter in galaxies.  He was one of the first to point out that spiral galaxies contain a large fraction of dark matter.
