Sacred Heart School students sang and danced on stage at the 2013 Polyfest Cultural Festival held at the Civic Theatre yesterday.

Polyfest co-ordinator Lisa Tou-McNaughton said some of the performers had been practising all year for the feel-good event, which continued to grow in popularity every year.

Sixty-five groups entered this year, she said.

The Rockdale Park Kindergarten, which had been involved in the festival for it's five years of running, kicked off the performances yesterday as proud parents, grandparents and other family members piled into the Civic Theatre to watch the shows.

"It's a very positive celebration for our community."

Performances will be held at the Civic Theatre until Friday.
