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.

Sonja Sjolander, creative director of the 2019 Schools Spectacular, provides a brief introduction to this fantastic resource.
These units of work have been created by Kaelene Neville, Principal, Murringo Public School, in consultation with The Arts Unit, to support curriculum delivery in conjunction with the 2019 Schools Spectacular. Students will take part in integrated activities from across the English, mathematics, creative arts, science, technologies, HSIE and PDHPE syllabi. The activities within a unit can be used individually, but because they flow from one to the other, are ideally taught as an entire unit.
Wish upon a star is a charming way to introduce younger students to concepts such as inclusion, giving and empathy.
