After the traditional live-to-air broadcast of Schools Spectacular was cancelled due to COVID, organisers have forged ahead with a collection of moments from the past four years of productions.

Relive the students' performances from Taree High in combined drama, Forster Public in combined dance, Gloucester High in the symphony orchestra and Gloucester Public in the combined choir when they reemerge in the broadcast on Prime7 at 7pm on Saturday December 5.

Using innovative techniques and featuring an amazing playlist, Schools Spectacular 2020 Remixed will look back at many memorable acts and spectacular moments with the addition of new performances by year 12 students featuring in a specially produced virtual item.

This year is the first time in 37 years that 1000s of the states most talented singers, dancers and musicians have not mesmerised audiences with a live production.
