From Dance to Wheelchair Basketball


In Health and Physical Education our Year 8 students have been lucky to have Nick from Allegro Dance Academy come along this term and teach them a number of international dances such as the Bachata, Salsa and the Cha-Cha. This has given us an excellent opportunity to use the brand-new Drama space with a sprung floor for dance in the recently-opened Sister Aloysius Martyn Arts Centre. This will lead into our Year 9 Ballroom Dancing Unit that the students will undertake next year.

Year 8s have also been playing Wheelchair Basketball as part of their Disabled Sports Unit in Physical Education. The students quickly learnt how to use the chairs and enjoyed some competitive games of basketball.
