State School Spectacular

Melissa Van Lambaart, a teacher at our school has managed to gain entry into the Victorian State Schools’ Spectacular for a group of our 20 grade 3-6 students. This is the first time our school has had representation at this event and we will be participating with only two other Gippsland schools.

“The Victorian State Schools Spectacular is one of the largest recurring performances in Australia. It is a professionally staged production performed at Melbourne Park to an audience of over 10,000 people. The Spectacular includes a cast of some 2,500 government school students, representing direct participation from approximately 1 in 7 government schools, working towards a common goal in a collaborative, competition-free environment. Its dual aim is to provide an invaluable performing arts opportunity to Victoria’s government school students and to showcase the enormous talent that exists in our schools. This is manifested in a 2-3 hour scripted performance that celebrates a diversity of performance mediums, including music, choir, dance, vocal, drama and orchestra. The 2011 Spectacular will be performed at Hisense Arena, Melbourne Park on September 18 over two shows at 11.00am and 5pm.” (DEECD Website)
