Fifteen schools and over 500 students have come to the end of rehearsals and are ready to take to the stage.
The Sapphire Coast Learning Community Public Schools Performing Arts Festival returns for its ninth year this week.
Team leader for the festival Suezanne Bourke said the students all brought “loads of energy” to their performances.
It will be held on three nights from Tuesday to Thursday, August 7-9 at the Bega Valley Commemorative Civic Centre in Bega, starting at 7pm.
A different program is planned for each night and performances include drama, music and dance. There will be a 100-student choir each night and the SCLC Stage Band will perform.
Entry is $15.
