Our students performed in the Victorian State Schools Spectacular on Saturday, 16 September.
Year 10 student Isabella Hodgman was a Principal Vocalist while Clancy Lee, also Year 10, performed as a Circus Artist and Ensemble Vocalist. A further 19 students joined in the mass choir with students from all over Victoria. Thank you to music coordinator Jodie Paxton and teacher John Harte for helping our students have this fantastic experience year after year.
Isabella reports on her experience: "Performing as a Principle Vocalist in the State Schools Spectacular was one of the best experiences of my life. I got the chance to perform to over 6,000 people in Hisense Arena, work personally with and learn from music industry professionals, and make friendships with the cast and crew that I will never forget. Every level of participation, from mass choir and dance, student stage management, student media crew, costume design, to principle vocals is an amazing experience. The people I've worked with over the year are like a family to me, and we all came together and put on an amazing show."
From Clancy: I have learnt so many important lessons that will stick with me for the rest of my life. One, you should always surround yourself with people who care about you and will support you no matter what. Two, you shouldn't stress over the tiniest things in life, just have faith that you know what you are doing. And finally, treasure every moment you spend with the people you love, the cast of spec are my family and I have been so lucky to be a part of that family and I will never forget it. The overall experience was one of laughter and joy. I will always remember it.
