The annual dance show was a tremendous success, raising over £1400 for Ocean Generation.

This year there was something for everyone, from tap-dancing to contemporary to ballet, many of the dances were self-choreographed or led by Sixth Form students (and dancing queens!) Molly Hunt and Sophie Ross. The audience was even treated to a surprise appearance from choreographers Mrs Rhatigan and Miss Coomber.

Each member of the Blue Team played a role in helping with the organisation of the show, whether that was hosting on the stage, sustainably baking treats to sell, preparing the running order for the technicians, or leading the backstage team. A lot of cooperation was involved in the process, which strengthened our teamwork skills and made the event so valuable and enjoyable.

Everybody involved had a wonderful time, including the audience who got to watch the talented dancers and enjoy ocean facts and jokes by talented hosts Magda and Sasha.

Proceeds from the ticket sales and baked goods will go to Ocean Generation, a charity that focuses on ocean regeneration, as the aim of our group is to prevent and reverse the damage of ocean pollution.

All in all, it was an amazing event that supported a great cause. Our thanks go to all involved including the PAC and technical team, choreographers including Mrs Rhatigan and Miss Coomber, the Language Assistants, and, of course, Ms Schaefer who oversaw and coordinated the event. You can find photos of the event here.

In addition to the Dance Show, it has been very rewarding term for the Blue Team. We have been visiting local primary schools each week and supporting environmental projects such as planting seedlings on school grounds, clearing grounds in other areas, or making bug hotels, generally helping to promote greener learning environments and grounds. We also organised activities and games for the children to take part in; curated so that they allow the children to be informed on the current plastic pollution problem our ocean is facing whilst allowing them to have fun and communicate with our team. In turn, this has allowed us to bond with the children we have met, passing down our knowledge to those younger than us. We are looking forward to continuing these projects in the term ahead.
