THERE is no place like Thargomindah according to young resident Jacinta Byrne.

Nine-year-old Jacinta and the 33 other students at Thargomindah State School recently filmed a video about why they loved living in their home town.

Thargomindah State School teaching principal Melanie Ludke said Toowoomba's singer/songwriter Josh Arnold had come to the school to do workshops with the students during their Small School Sports Camp.

"Before he came out my class and I emailed him our ideas about why we love living in Thargomindah and he wrote the lyrics to the song," she said.

"A lot of the lines are things the students came up with."

She said the students had a lot of fun filming the video, which was a great way of showing the world how great a place Thargomindah was.

"It was lots of fun, recording it was my favourite part," Jacinta, who sang most of the song, said.

Her cousin Emity Warner said she enjoyed recording the video in the sand hills and had a lot of fun singing with her father who also appeared in the video.
