Students put best foot forward in performing arts program

CRAWLING ALONG: Nangwarry Primary School students do their best caterpillar impressions.

NANGWARRY Primary School students explored creativity and expression last week as the annual Footsteps Dance Company site visit was held.

Providing students with a performing arts experience ranging from drama to dance, the fun and interactive program delivered a number of key life lessons weaved throughout its programming.

The school’s undercover multi-purpose court was transformed into a performing arts space for the week-long program.

School principal Erika Hurley said Footsteps allowed students to experience the arts from an expert teacher, who also touched on themes of resilience through the drama component.

This year’s Footsteps program clashed with Book Week, which had been moved to October due to COVID-19.

The school instead hosted its Book Week activities this week, including a ‘come as a character’ day.

“We aim to provide opportunities for students across a lot of different curriculum areas,” Ms Hurley said.

Nangwarry Primary School is continuing to take enrolments for its attached 2021 pre-school service, with enrolled children able to join in several whole-school activities and opportunities.
