Cherry Jam

Cherry Jam is a 2 day performing arts festival showcasing the talents of public school students from in and around Young NSW.   

Students from Kindergarten to Year 12 take to the stage in a celebration of music and dance. The festival offers the opportunities for schools to collaborate on combined items including a combined choir and band.

In an effort to provide a COVID-19 safe event whilst still maintaining maximum participation, the finale this year will include students from all of the schools in a combined performance which will be pre-recorded as a video and showcased on the night. 

The final night performance will also be live-streamed to enable more parents and members of the community to witness the creative arts efforts of our students from the Hilltops public schools.

The operation of this program is contingent on advice provided by the NSW Department of Education in consultation with NSW Health. All activities will adhere to the DoE COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.
