New frontiers for new learning

We danced our way to success

Congratulations to our school council for their fine work with their third Annual Dance A Thon. Students and staff enjoyed a morning of dancing in our school gym. The day was classic March – rainy and grey- but inside the dance was a wonderful way to celebrate healthy living, learn some dance and movement moves and have fun. What a great way to shake off those winter blues.

Together, we raised over $3000 to support our school including the Mural Project with our local artist which will begin after March Break.  The council also did a wonderful job at connecting with local businesses who in turn donated prizes for our Dance A Thon. We made important connections with our community and thank our local partners who donated so generously. The adage “it takes a village to raise a child” is so true and really came to life in the last week at our school. Many thanks to our volunteers who helped to organise the event, showed up day after day to manage the donations, and danced along with the students on March 4th.

Well done everyone!
