PSHS students shine on stage
After months of preparation, more than 1200 Queensland school students, including some from Pittsworth High School (PSHS), hit the stage last week for the state’s biggest youth performing arts event – Creative Generation: State Schools Onstage (CGEN).
The PSHS performing arts students included singers participating in the choir and dancers.
Education Minister Grace Grace said this marked the 17th year of CGEN in Queensland, providing students with a rare opportunity to perform in a large scale production.
“Children from kindergarten to Year 12 wowed audiences at the Brisbane Convention and Entertainment Centre (BCEC) in four performances over last Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
“CGEN featured orchestra, choirs, dancers, actors, vocalists and student media and stage crew who represented state schools from all corners of the state.
“It was an extra special experience for students this year, as COVID-19 caused last year’s show to be a virtual production.”
Ms Grace said a lot of hard work went into the production.
“I take my hat off to every student."
This year’s show will be televised nationally on Network Ten on Saturday 27th November at midday.
