LEETON shire schools will be well represented at this year's Schools Spectacular extravaganza in Sydney after once again wowing the judges with their audition tapes.
Students from Leeton High School, Gralee School, Leeton Public School, Parkview Public School and Yanco Agricultural High School were successful in gaining entry into the event, which will be held Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney Olympic Park on November 22 and 23.
Emika Gooley from Leeton High School has also been chosen as a featured dancer for the event, which is an honour only few are given.
Musicians, including members of the 100-piece symphony orchestra, stage band and Millennium Marching Band, will be announced closer to the Schools Spectacular.
Schools Spectacular creative director Sonja Sjolander said this year's theme, "stars" is a tribute to everybody involved in the event.
"In the Schools Spectacular, everyone is a star," Ms Sjolander said.
"We are recognised as the biggest performance of its kind in the world, and to attain this success everyone has to shine in their role.
"Together we shine brighter.
"We are all stars, whether we are the performers on stage, backstage, crew, the dedicated teachers who make everything happen for their students or the parents who devote countless hours ensuring their children have this wonderful opportunity to star in the Schools Spectacular."
Ms Sjolander said local performers from across Leeton shire will join 5500 performers drawn from public schools across the state.
