Kids' extravaganzas set new standards of professionalism

ROSEMEADOW Public School's all-student extravaganza was billed as "A Night At The Movies" - literally.

It was staged at Event Cinemas in Campbelltown.

A big crowd cheered on as 700 students, in shifts, climbed onto the professionally lit and equiped stage to perform musical hits.

Principal Paul Hughes was impressed by the professionalism of pupils and teachers.

"The audience was captivated by the colourful costumes and enactments of Finding Nemo, Trolls, Toy Story, Addams Family, School of Rock, Jumanji and Mary Poppins," he said.

"The students all thrived being on the big stage and staff are looking forward to seeing them on the big screen sometime soon.

"The school would like to thank Event Cinemas for hosting us and look forward to our next extravaganza in two years time."

The Rosemeadow PS effort is just one of many, as schools across Macarthur push the bar to new heights.

Long gone are the days when a school concert meant a boring recorder recital.
