Communities around the state got a glimpse of the performance talent of NSW public school students who sprung into action at a series of flash mobs to celebrate the start of Education Week 2010.

About 500 students descended on Sydney's Circular Quay for an energetic performance as part of a flash mob - an event where a group of people are organised to quickly assemble in a public place to do something unexpected and then disperse.

Concurrent flash mobs, involving almost 200 other NSW public school students, were held at Miranda and Orange.

The NSW Minister for Education and Training, Verity Firth, said the events were an excellent way to start Education Week and encouraged communities "across the state to join us all in celebrating excellence in NSW education".

"What a fantastic way to showcase the talents of our students," Ms Firth said.

"Education Week is about celebrating the achievements of our students, teachers and school communities."
