In 2024, the School Spectacular presents a new production, All 4 One! This year, we band together to bring even more exciting opportunities that place NSW public schools and students at the heart of the arena production. Onstage, 5,500 students experience a unique professional arena production. Behind the scenes and in the development process, the School Spectacular's student creative, production, and media team empower students to take steps towards a career in the arts, entertainment and hospitality industries, while our digital showcase features innovative and cultural work by schools and students.

Spilling out of the arena, the free outdoor festival SpecFest celebrates the diversity, talent, and breadth of performance of our schools and more than 500 students. Rock bands, flash mobs, slam poets, and school performance groups come together for pre-show entertainment, enjoyed with chill-out zones, food, and festivities. 

2024 is the year for All 4 One!
