Taking a break from their usual school production, Hillside’s Parkwood Green Primary School pupils are putting themselves on the state stage.

A dozen pupils from the school will be part of the State School’s Spectacular later this month, joining with students from around Victoria for a performing arts showcase set to wow audiences.

The school’s performing arts facilitator Jacqui Hermina said the pupils were excited to show their skills.

“We wanted to offer a different performance opportunity for our students, and the kids had seen this on tv and loved how involved it is,” Ms Hermina said.

“It’s a three hour show, and they do two shows on the day, so it’s a big effort for these students to throw themselves into it and get involved.”

The school plans to return to its school production next year, but will likely make the school spectacular an ongoing offering for students as well.

The State School’s Spectacular will run on September 14, with shows at 1pm and 6.30pm.
