Ballroom dancing for Year 9 students

Year 9 Ballroom Dancing

A message from Patrick Darvill, HoD PDHPE

In line with the PDHPE curriculum, all students in Year 9 will be participating in ballroom dancing lessons and an evening of dance during Week 4 of Term 1. The dance will be conducted in association with St Clare’s College and will be led by The Joan Carmody School of Dance. The details for each event are as follows.

Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 February

Ballroom dancing lessons will be conducted in the Lacey Gymnasium at Waverley College during Periods 1 and 2. All students are required to bring their PE shoes to change into.

Wednesday 21 February

Students will participate in an organised dance with St Clare’s College. Students have been asked to arrive and assemble in Braidwood on the school campus at 6.15pm. The dance will begin promptly at 6:30pm at the College Gym and will conclude at 8.30pm.

Students are requested to wear collared shirts or polo tops, long pants and trainers. The dance will be supervised by both Waverley and St Clare’s staff members. Students are required to get their name marked off as the enter the dance.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students to learn the skills of ballroom dancing and to enjoy a social evening with their peers. Boys are reminded that they will be representing and therefore normal school expectations for behaviour and cooperation will apply.
