“For many years we have seen the benefits and positive changes with the way our students represent our school and engage with the wider Port Stephens community.

“This was demonstrated in the best possible way last week at Showcase, an annual event held during Education Week involving the Lakeside Community of Schools, hosted, and produced by Irrawang High School CAPA Faculty over two nights to sellout crowds.

“The event encompasses choirs, dance, drama, drum corps, musical ensembles, musical theatre, rock bands and vocal soloists, and fosters and nurtures confidence and promotes student growth.”
