visiting artists & performers

During the year students at Lakes Entrance Primary School are exposed to many unique educational and cultural experiences provided by visiting artists and performers.


Students have been wowed by Valanga Khoza (a black South African storyteller and musician and close friend of LEPS), Circus Challenge, a circus troupe who performed and then workshopped our whole school, Neil Murray, the creator of “My Island Home” who spoke of his connections to Indigenous Australia, Seaweed Sally and her team who provided hands on “Marine Studies” across the school, Vibe 3 on 3 which is an active mix of basketball, rap music and dance with an Indigenous flavour, a theatre companies production of “The Hunchback”, the Devon Meadows Primary School Rock Band and lots more.


We have also welcomed local Indigenous artists Francis Harrison and Lenny Hayes who worked with students and community to create a Heathland Mural, Indigenous animal stepping stones and animal prints.
Education extends beyond the classroom doors at LEPS.

 

 

performing arts and music program


The LEPS Choir rehearses weekly under the guidance of Music teacher, Ms Caddie.  The Choir sing the anthem at weekly assemblies and are showcased at Civics & Citizenship ceremonies and special events such as festivals and Carols by Candlelight.


 

 

Each year LEPS students are entertained and enthralled by a major musical production.  This year we were excited to have an Indigenous Arts Performer, Dion Drummond, engage our whole school with his exciting dance performance.  Previous captivating performances have been "The Snow Queen", "King Arthur", "Cinderella", "The Beauty and the Beast" and "The Hunchback".
