More than 200 students from North Wagga Public School, and 13-year-old Wagga High School student Jazmin Castle, will make a special appearance NSW Department of Education's digital Spectacular Schools showcase, Born to Be Brave.
Spectacular Schools is a 2021 rendition of the annual Schools Spectacular, celebrating the creative and performing arts achievements of NSW Public Schools throughout the year.
North Wagga Public School is one of just three schools in the state to be selected by the DoE's Arts Unit to have their performance professionally filmed and is the only school outside Sydney.
Miss Castle, who was selected to be the main feature after her phenomenal solo audition, said the opportunity to work with a professional camera crew was a great experience for all involved.
"We were out here yesterday doing this [performing] on Zoom and then the one opportunity we had when it wasn't raining we were able to do it [perform] with the whole school," she said.
"It's been a really great experience Today, (Friday) because the Spectacular Schools team have come down from the art unit with all of their cameras and lights and we've been shooting all day.

"It's been a really fun day for everybody.
"It's also really good to be doing something different from what we normally do, which is bring everything here instead of taking everything to Sydney, which I think has been really good for everyone at North Wagga Public School.
Student Ruby Billighan, who is six years old, said her favourite part of filming was 'all of it'.
Trinity Suamili, 10, said it was her 'first, or like, second' time performing.
"I'm very happy I get to do it," she said.
While 11-year-old student Benji Orban said the best part about the experience is being able to 'be yourself and have fun whilst learning 'a new experience and new skills abilities.
And while he is a little nervous, he's mostly just excited.
