A group of Dubbo students got the chance to show their culture to the rest of the State when they appeared in the School Spectacular.
Leeroy Toomey, Zach Bruce, Nick Frail and Alfred Smith headed to Sydney for the event where they performed a traditional Aboriginal dance.
Nick and Alfred also appeared in a contemporary dance.
“It went really well. On the way back they wouldn’t stop talking about it,” said Rod Frail, who accompanied the boys and thought it was a great experience for them.
“It was good to show them something more of the world than Dubbo and open them up a bit more.
“It gave them more confidence, through performing and talking to other students.”
Being part of the School Spectacular is no bludge and on one day the performers were up at 6am and didn’t get back to bed until 11pm.
They found it rewarding, if a little difficult to appear in front of the more than 50,000 people who saw the shows.
“It was kind of nerve-racking but you got up there and just did it,” Leeroy said.
Zach said one of the highlights was the new friends they made.
“We got to meet a lot of people from all around the place.”
There was one sour note when they found out the traditional Aboriginal dance had been cut from the television broadcast.
“It’s very disappointing,” Mr Frail said.
“We were led to believe they would be on there and they’ve told all their family members to watch it.”
Although they will not be part of the national telecast they will be sent a movie with their role still intact.
