Music Events






The Victorian State Schools Spectacular (VSSS) is an annual event and includes a cast of 3000 Victorian government school students, working towards a common goal in a collaborative, competition-free environment. Its dual aim is to provide an invaluable performing arts opportunity to students and to showcase the enormous talent that exists in our schools. This all comes together in a three hour show that celebrates a diversity of performance mediums, including choir, dance, vocal, drama, and orchestra. The 2017 VSSS is on Saturday 16th September at Hisense Arena.

EHPS students have been involved in many different aspects of the VSSS for many years. In 2017, EHPS students will be performing in the orchestra and mass dance, and are rehearsing regularly in preparation.

VSSS 2017 BROADCAST:  The 2017 State Schools Spectacular will be broadcast on Saturday 16th December at 7pm on Channel 7. The two hour broadcast will feature highlights from the live performances as well as behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. Tune in to catch all the action and relive the Spectacular memories.

It will also be simulcast via live streaming on the 7PLUS app and be available on the 7PLUS catch-up website for 30 days from the broadcast date.






Celebration Day:  2nd November 2017 at 12.30pm.

2017 Song:  Shine Together

The idea of Music: Count Us In came about as a way of promoting music in schools; each year, one song is written and thousands of schools across Australia sing the same song on the same day at the same time as a way of joining students, teachers, parents and friends nationwide to celebrate the importance of music and community.

The 2015 event had additional significance for EHPS, with one of our students collaborating with three other students, John Foreman OAM, Marcia Hines, and Tom Diesel to write the song for 2015.






This is an annual event that is a wonderful celebration of the music program at EHPS. All EHPS students prepare to perform in this special event.

Showcase 2017 was held on Thursday 2nd November at 6.30pm at Robert Blackwood Hall, Monash University.

A DVD ($25 each) or USB ($30 each) of Showcase 2017 is being professionally produced. Order envelopes were distributed with the program at Showcase; additional envelopes are available from the Office. Orders and payment must be returned to the Office by Thursday 9th November 2017.

A small quantity of programs are left over; you can collect an additional copy as a souvenir from the Office.
