FAIRVALE High School was treated to a spectacular performance by students from Queensland's Woodridge State High School last Tuesday.

About 45 students and five teachers from the school visited Fairvale High as part of their VET entertainment course, which included a five-day tour in Sydney.

Janelle Grills, Fairvale High School's assistant national partnerships manager, said the aim of the visit was to build a stronger connection between the two schools.

"The partnership is to provide the opportunity for students from both schools to work collaboratively by sharing a common interest in music, skills and talent," Ms Grills said.

"The time spent together enabled staff and students to share their experiences and ideas.

"This experience has inspired both schools to work side by side in the future."

Woodridge High students gave a concert that included large band set-ups as well as small acoustic pieces.

Ms Grills said the repertoire comprised music from the 70s to the present, as well as original compositions by students.

"Year 11 music students from Fairvale High were also invited to perform at the concert as part of the Pasifika engagement," she said.

"They opened the concert by performing a cappella, acoustic and band arrangements of popular songs."

Ms Grills said she was proud of the school's music students who took part in the concert.

Fairvale High School hosted a special lunch for the performers.
