The stars of Parkview Public School shone brightly during Wednesday evenings Performing Arts Extravaganza 'Parkview In Lights': A Night at the Movies.

It was an amazing night that featured all the talent that the school has to offer. An eleven act card that featured clowns, strong men, Snow White, Terminators, Avatars, Lion Kings and so much more offered the young and young at heart an incredible array of entertainment. 

The school's highly regarded school band led by young vocalists Jack Quinlivan and Emily Jennings played, the Infants and Primary Choirs sang, the school's talented Dance Group performed and every student from Kindergarten to Year Six had their chance to shine on stage in front of an enthusiastic crowd.

Over 800 people packed into the LHS MPC for this celebration of students musical and dramatic talent, all walking away satisfied after a remarkable night of entertainment which was topped in the finale of by a stirring rendition of Fame by the entire cast led by talented vocalists Candice Murphy and Chelsie Wood-Jordan.

Parkview Public School Principal Travis Irvin could not have been prouder at the end of the evening. "What we have just seen is what happens when you provide students with the opportunity to step outside their comfort zone and be the best they can be in a wide range of pursuits. A wholistic education is about providing opportunities for children to develop in all areas of life. I am amazed at what our communtiy has produced this evening. The performances were first class from the children, the support from our skilled and dedicated staff was terrific and the contribution of our amazing community... they never cease to amaze me with the things they do for our kids and our school. The costumes, the make-up, the props; they were all incredible. To have 800 plus people rocking the MPC was quite amazing as well!"

A wide range of photographs will be catalogued in the coming days and be made available for parents and carers. More details of this process will be released in coming days.
