State School Spectacular

Five Ararat College students, dancers Jack Ward, Khloe Campbell, Tara Charlesworth, Toneya Hurst and, working behind the scenes in stage management, Lauren Bowles, took part in this year’s State Schools Spectacular. Their performances at Hisense Arena followed months of hard work and rehearsals.

Congratulations to all students, and thank you to staff members Ms Erhardt, Ms McDougall, Ms Andrew and Mr Bowles for their work organising and accompanying the students.
