Gymea and Schools Spectacular 2019

This week our Dance and Drama students have been rehearsing with 5500 other students from across 370 New South Wales public primary and secondary schools, performing in the 2019 School’s Spectacular. Held at Qudos Arena at Homebush, the performances are a world class production highlighting the value of our kids, our performing arts and the opportunities to enhance these in public education. This year’s theme was Stars, highlighting our student’s opportunity to shine.

Some highlights for Gymea:

  • Our Dance students once again enjoyed the opportunity to participate in Schools Spectacular, with 12 Gymea dance students participating in the dance segment ‘Shadow Land’ in Look to the Stars.
  • A great opportunity for our drama students this year. Gymea was one of four schools whose Drama Ensemble was selected in this year’s Schools Spectacular. 12 Gymea Drama students performed in the Romeo and Juliet inspired ‘O Verona’.
  • Dane Smithers of Year 11 was selected as a featured artist in the Stars Studded segment as a hip-hop dancer in the ‘90s flashback’.
  • Ethan Lawson was recognised during rehearsals for his dedication and skills and was selected to feature in the segment Star Cross Lovers, Romeo and Juliet.

A huge thank you to the teachers who supported our students: Mrs Johnson, our Dance Teacher with an amazing history of association with School’s Spectacular, and Mrs Osborne, our Drama teacher who has enabled Drama Arts to grow at Gymea, leading our maiden drama inclusion in School’s Spectacular. Thank you also to the support of school staff who assisted in particular, Ms Siuhengalu for her help at Qudos with our students. A final thank you to the parents and families of our students for supporting them in this wonderful event even with those late night pick-ups.
