People Together

This year’s event promises to be just as BIG as ever.

The 2019 Festival will be opened by 13-year-old Audrey Mason-Hyde, an impressive poet, actor, thinker and public speaker, who will speak to this year’s theme, People Together.

We will then join the rest of Australia in a simultaneous reading of Alpacas with Maracas by Matt Cosgrove for National Simultaneous Storytime. If you can’t make the event, find out how your students can join #1millionkids here.

Next, students will become The Mighty Choir of Small Voices and sing the High School Musical hit ‘We’re All In This Together’ (practised in Term 1 as part of the Public Schools Music Festival Program).

The event will finish with a high-energy gig by South Australian group Electric Fields, whose exuberant music perfectly embodies the festival theme. To launch DreamBIG 2019, students and teachers will perform a specially choreographed dance as they make their way across the footbridge for an afternoon of performances, workshops, exhibitions and other activities.

Video of this easy to learn dance choreography will be available here from 1 February 2019 for participating students and teachers to practise along with their singing in Term 1!

Statewide
