Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today congratulated local performers who participated in the Schools Spectacular on being part of the biggest-ever show in the entertainment icon’s 33-year history.
Stuart Ayres said performers from the electorate of Penrith were joined by more than 5,000 students from some 500 public schools from all over the state on the QUDOS Bank Arena stage at Sydney’s Olympic Park over four shows in late November 2016.
“The Schools Spectacular theme was Dream Big, which was appropriate because it was the biggest show ever produced,” Stuart Ayres said.
“Schools Spectacular has already forged a reputation as a state significant event and last year’s offering took it to a whole new level.
“Congratulations to all participating students, I know that both students and teachers work incredibly hard throughout the year to ensure the high quality of the performances.”
Congratulations to the following local participating schools:
- Kingswood High School
- Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School
- Pulse Junior Dance Ensemble
Students from the Penrith electorate shared the stage with some of the state’s most talented young performers including a 2,700 strong choir; 2,300 dancers; an 80-piece symphony orchestra; a world-class stage band and nearly 40 outstandingly talented solo performers.
