Tens of thousands of family and friends are expected to tune in to watch 5,500 students perform.
Schools Spectacular Creative Director, Sonja Sjolander said it will also be great viewing for anyone who wants to watch joyous, uplifting television.
“The infectious enthusiasm and amazing talent of our Schools Spectacular will warm everyone’s hearts,” Sjolander said.
“We’ve been thrilled by the accolades that have followed this year’s show.
“They have praised the richness, colour, vitality and creativity – and, of course, this makes for great television.”
Sjolander said there will be something for everybody from a rock band, to a 100-piece symphony orchestra and a 2800-voice choir accompanying the classical ballet.
John Foreman, himself an alumni of the Schools Spectacular, will compere the show and play the grand piano.
Each year the Schools Spectacular has a theme and this year it was STARS.
“Everyone truly lived up to their star billing,” Sjolander said.
“They really shone and together our galaxy of stars made the 2019 Schools Spectacular a show to remember.”
The Schools Spectacular will be broadcast Australia-wide on the Seven Network, including Prime7 across regional NSW, at 7pm on Saturday, December 5.
