2018 Song: One Song
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.
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.
EHPS students have been involved in many different aspects of the VSSS for many years. In 2017, EHPS students performed in the orchestra and mass dance.
