“DARE To Dream” was the theme of this year’s 2014 State Schools Spectacular performed on Saturday at Hisense Arena, Melbourne.
Twenty-one students from Mansfield Secondary College were part of around 3000 students to hit the stage for two performances to a packed audience of 10,000 people.
The students were part of a 1500 strong choir and sang a range of songs from Jackson Five’s “Can You Feel It” to Lady Gaga’s ‘Applause’.
Kiera Price was selected to perform in the Performing Arts Choir, and this special choir sang a beautiful piece called “The Dominion of Dreams”.
The concert was a showcase of talent from Victorian government schools, and has taken close to a year to organise.
To quote Richard Bolt, the secretary of Department of Education and Early Childhood Development: “The Spectacular is not just great entertainment; it also gives students an opportunity to learn outside the classroom.
