Both the Japanese and Dance classrooms, which were formally open-air alcoves of the sports auditorium, were enclosed thanks to joint funding from the P&C and school. The internal fit-out has been funded by the state government. The P&C has also contributed to the cost of air-conditioning to ensure that students and staff using these rooms are as comfortable as those in every other room in the school. The dance studio includes a full-length mirror along one wall and a ballet barre to cater for our Dance Excellence program. Specific furniture, resembling a traditional Japanese classroom will now be ordered by the school.

The chaplaincy role is an important additional resource that can support the individual and social development of the children in our school, some of whom have or will experience significant personal or family trauma while enrolled here. During 2019, the chaplain is scheduled to work 3 days per week at EHSS; to get the chaplaincy program off the ground, the P&C funded the annual salary for one of these days with the remaining funds being collected through donations and specific chaplaincy fundraisers held throughout the year.
