Coorabell Public School celebrated the end of year with a recent concert, held at the Mullum Civic Centre.

Simon Field from the Coorabell School P&C Association said, ‘Each year the concert is written and led by our year six students, and this year’s show was an incredible success.’

‘This small country school with a big family heart prides itself on celebrating the creative potential in every student.

Written and led by the enthusiastic and talented year six students, the entire school took to the stage with a pulsating, creative and thoughtful original piece which led the audience to a mysterious museum where prominent historic statues came to life to share their story and influence on the world.

Congratulations to all involved, and what a joy to see a small school, with great academic and sporting achievement, so inclusively and actively encourage the creative arts to produce a concert worthy of Broadway.’
