Wamberal and Kariong Public Schools and Kincumber High School have all been named to the select group of Hunter and Central Coast schools that will perform in the 2019 Schools Spectacular.
There have been just 25 schools from the entirety of the Hunter and Central Coast regions named to this year’s line up that will see around 5,500 students from schools across NSW take to the QUDOS Bank Arena for four performances, celebrating the state’s best young musicians, thespians, singers, puppeteers and dancers in November.
The three schools will join with 366 others from across NSW to perform in one of the events’ ensembles, with Kariong and Wamberal students joining the Combined Choir, and Kincumber students the Combined Dance.
Schools Spectacular Creative Director, Sonja Sjolander, said that this year’s event theme ‘STARS’, is a tribute to everybody involved in the Schools Spectacular.
“We are recognised as the biggest performance of its kind in the world, and to attain this success, everyone has to shine in their role.
“We are all stars, whether we are the performers on stage, backstage, crew, the dedicated teachers who make everything happen for their students, or the parents who devote countless hours ensuring their children have this wonderful opportunity to star in the Schools Spectacular,” she said.
