Abstract: "A Referendum in '99 sent a Constitution down the line The Queen said 'Yep I think it will do, You can make this work but it's up to you!' Well a hundred years on we are doing our best but the problems we face put us all to the test." -'Federation Rap'. 'Federation Rap' was performed by school students before the then prime minister, Paul Keating, and other delegates to the 1993 Centenary Corowa Conference. It was one of many events and gatherings in the decade preceding the Centenary of Federation as the governments headed by Paul Keating and John Howard respectively attempted to increase awareness of and knowledge about the origins of Australia as a nation-state.
