Students from the five Wyong area schools participating in the 2019 Schools Spectacular completed their first major rehearsal on October 28.
Gorokan Public School, Wadalba Community School, Northlakes High School and the Tumbi Umbi and Berkley Vale Campuses of Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College are all participating in the Spectacular, which will take place at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena from November 22 to 23.
The rehearsal marked a milestone for the event, with it being the first time in the show’s 36-year history that regional and rural schools that often can’t attend the rehearsals due to travel constraints, were able to do so via video link, to complete the Spectacular’s first ever massed dance rehearsal of the show’s closing number, which will see over 5,000 students take to the stage.
Widely considered the jewel in the Spectacular’s crown, the finale number is the climax of each Spectacular, and its Co-Executive Producer, Rosemary Davis, said she was delighted by how well the rehearsal came together.
