About Us

The Performers in Schools website was established in response to the NSW Department of School Education & Training withdrawal from the authorisation of school performances in late 2009.  This withdrawal placed the responsibility on the selection of suitable school performances back onto the individual principals of schools.  The schools would be required to access the academic merit of performances without performances meeting any criteria or participating in any vetting process.  This website was set up to aid the schools in this decision.

All performers registered with this site have had "Working with Children" checks completed and have $10 million public liability insurance.  All performers' work is monitored through a performance feedback process.  All performers, unless stated otherwise, were authorised in 2009 by the "Performance for Schools Program" as part of the Performing Arts Unit of the NSW Department of School Education and Training or by the Register of programs approved to tour into Queensland state schools.
