The Victorian State Schools Spectacular includes a cast of 3000 Victorian government school students, working towards a common goal in a collaborative, competition-free environment.
Its dual aim is to provide an invaluable performing arts opportunity to students and to showcase the enormous talent that exists in our schools. This all comes together in a 2-3 hour scripted show that celebrates a diversity of performance mediums, including choir, dance, vocal, drama, and orchestra.
The Spectacular promotes student engagement and educational outcomes by boosting motivation, building confidence and self-esteem, cooperation, collaboration and of course the further development of the performing arts.
Students who participate in the Victorian State Schools Spectacular are provided with the amazing experience of performing live in front of thousands of people. Two shows are held at Hisense Arena to an audience of 8,000 – 10,00 people. The show is recorded and shown on television later in the year.
Sherbourne Primary School has been involved in this performing arts program for the past 15 years. We have had groups of students perform in the choir or the massed dance components every second year.
It provides an amazing opportunity for our artistic students to perform at a world class event in front of thousands of people.
