The Schools Spectacular is the highest profile performing arts event for the NSW Department of Education. The Theme for 2024 is All 4 One and is all about looking forward, supporting one another and is centred around unity, connection and working as one for a common goal.

This year approximately 5,500 students, kindergarten to year 12, from over 400 schools across the state will take part in the show. There will be 40 solo performances from featured artists; a 2,800-strong choir; 2,300 dancers; an 80-piece symphony orchestra; a world-class stage band and many specialist ensembles.
