Additional Information

SUPERVISION

  • All students at the Schools Spectacular must be supervised at all times by a teacher. Schools must provide a supervising teacher for all Combined Dance, Combined Choir, Aboriginal Dance Ensemble, D'Arts Ensemble, VET crew, Combined Drama Ensemble and Featured Ensemble groups. Each group will require their own supervising teacher even if they are from the same school. Relief for supervising teachers is the responsibility of the school.
  • Teachers are encouraged to provide active supervision at all times and assist choreographers at rehearsals and production team staff during show week.

COMMUNICATION

  • At this stage in the process, all communication for the Schools Spectacular takes place via email. Check your email regularly to avoid missing any important information. 
  • If successful, teachers will be required to download the Schools Spectacular app for the most up-to-date information and regular reminders and alerts.
