LEETON shire's presence was once again felt in droves at this year's Schools Spectacular extravaganza in Sydney.
Students from Yanco Agricultural High School, Gralee School, Leeton Public School, Parkview Public School and Leeton High School were all carefully selected to take part in this year's event, which was one to remember.
This year's theme was "stars" and that is certainly what each of the students were.
There were many special mentions, including performers from the shire who played a starring role out of the many thousands of students.
They included Emika Gooley as a featured dancer, as well as Sophie Mannall.
Others were part of the Bangarra Dance Theatre Youth program.
The students spent a week in Sydney in the lead up to the stadium shows, taking time to rehearse, but also enjoy some fun along the way by seeing the sights of the city.
Schools Spectacular creative director Sonja Sjolander said audiences of around 30,000 across the four performances were thrilled with the trademark colour, outstanding talent and variety presented.
"Everyone truly lived up to their star billing," she said.
"They really shone and together our galaxy of stars made the 2019 Schools Spectacular a show to remember."
Leeton shire's stars were part of a total of 5500 that included 40 featured performers, a 100-piece symphony orchestra, 20-piece stage band, 2800-voice choir, 2300 dancers and more.
Residents will get the chance to view the show on Channel 7 on December 7 at 7pm.
