More than 5500 NSW students, including Year 6 student, Annabel Smith from Young Public School, took part in a historic moment late last week when they set a Guinness World Records title.
The group has been certified by the global authority on record breaking as achieving the title for the Largest Amateur Variety Act at the 33rd annual Schools Spectacular held in Sydney.
The annual event, showcases the talent in NSW public schools and features a variety of acts including a choir, symphony orchestra, stage band as well as solo performers.
