STARS is the theme for the 2019 show. Each and every one of the 5,500 performers is a star!
They each have their moment to shine. They each take to the stage so proudly to demonstrate their talents, their beliefs and their identity. Their faces light up with pride and achievement. We celebrate their uniqueness in the universe.
60,000 years and more is but a small journey through the incredible history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their experiences in Australia.
This unit of work has been created by Kaelene Neville, Principal, Murringo Public School, in consultation with The Arts Unit, to support curriculum delivery in conjunction with the Schools Spectacular 2019.
Duration: 5 weeks (approximately 25 hours)
In this unit of work, students will take part in integrated activities from across the English, mathematics, creative arts, science, technologies, HSIE and PDHPE syllabi. The activities can be used individually, but because they flow from one to the other, 60,000 years and more is ideally taught as an entire unit.
The unit culminates by attending the Friday matinee performance of Schools Spectacular 2019. We recommend organising an excursion to see the show if possible. However, the unit can be taught without doing this and classes could watch the televised show when it becomes available.
