On Wednesday night, the capacity audience were entertained and impressed by the variety of dances performed by students from Years 3 to 9. It was very apparent that the students worked very hard to perfect their routines, and were clearly very thankful for the hard work of the teachers who organised it. Thank you to Mrs Laura Wright, Miss Andrea Webb and Miss Helen Thomson, the organiser of the event.
