YOU be the judge - does any end of the year school concert compare to the electrifying atmosphere of this one?

More than a thousand people packed the Caloundra Events Centre to watch as the Sunshine Coast's real super heroes shone on stage.

And while many couldn't walk, some couldn't even talk or smile and were helped on stage by their carers, but as the Currimundi Special School students sang, the entire audience was mesmerised.

Mum Yoshe Hodgkinson couldn't hold back the tears as her severely disabled son, Jakson, was on stage with the song he had chosen and words he had written appearing on the big screen.

An image of Jakson, strapped in his wheelchair, appeared on screen as the words "I am the superhero of my own life" scrolled down the screen.

"I am fighting the battles of everyday life," it continued.

"If I had a super power, I would fly."

The rest of Jakson's class took to the stage and sang the Charlie Puth hit, I'm Only One Call Away as Jakson was cloaked with a Superman cape and taken to a cardboard cut out of Superman's body flying through the sky.

School principal, Alwyn Green, said Jakson's performance was one of 16 on the night celebrating the achievements of the 220 students and their families who everyday overcome superhuman battles.

Mr Green said the performance night was a "great opportunity for all of the families to come together to see their children perform".

"Many of our students over the year find it difficult to access other things in the community they can do and their parents can go to," he said.

"For many families, this is the one time they will see their child perform on stage.

"It really is a good way to celebrate.

"The parents love it and the kids have a great time."
