More than 800 students took to the stage this week to perform at the Term 2 Festival of the Sacred. The concerts, which were held over three days in Kyabram and Cobram, showcased the extraordinary talents of Grade 5 and 6 students from the Goulburn Valley Deanery, as well as special performances from secondary students, some who had performed in the Festival of the Sacred themselves when they were in primary school.

Well known songs from musicals such as Matilda and Pippen had toes tapping and the solo and choral performances were simply spectacular. High energy dances and drama presentations, were also a feature of the festival performance.

The Australian School of Performing Arts (ASPA Ed) team have been working alongside specialist Performing Arts and Classroom teachers throughout the term to prepare the students for Concert Day.

The program ensures that all students in Sandhurst Primary Schools have access to a quality Performing Arts experience in their primary years. The Festival of the Sacred program also develops teacher capacity in the development of best practice and teachers are supported with extensive resources to support the delivery of the program.

The benefits of engaging in the Performing Arts through a program such as the Festival of the Sacred include the development of resilience, confidence, and social skills. Extensive research shows that participating in Arts activities promotes well-being and brain plasticity, enhancing the growth of the whole person. The Festival of the Sacred program aligns with the Victorian Curriculum for Music and Dance.

The Festival of the Sacred Concert begins with a Liturgy of the Word which provides an opportunity to celebrate our faith together.

Congratulations to the students (and teachers) who took part in this week's Festival. Your performances brought such joy to everyone who was able to attend.
