Schools Spectacular


Teacher to-do list

Use the list below to guide you on what you may still need to do:

  • Upload student data to School Bytes.
  • Upload your teacher headshot.
  • Collect a Deed of consent from all of your students before attending your first rehearsal. Please note, that you are responsible for maintaining these records.

We will keep adding to this list as the process progresses.

Risk assessments

Below you will find a link to our current risk management plans for rehearsal venues. These are to be used to supplement the NSW Department of Education’s excursion planning and management policy and your school’s excursion procedure. You will still need to develop your own plan that includes travel and accommodation where appropriate.
