DANCE – Boys’ Dance
WCPS Boys’ Dance, a non-audition and no prior experience required program for boys from Years 4 – 6, has grown from 50 students, at its inception in 2016, to today catering for 100 enthused and energised dancers. Designed to appeal to, and provide for a diverse range of abilities, the program has truly been amazing, beyond belief, in engaging and encouraging boys to participate more fully in the Arts, through Dance. This hip-hop and break-dancing program provides the dancers with opportunities for further development in collaboration, teamwork, skill enhancement, body awareness, strength, interpersonal and communicative skills, as well as a growth in confidence. The boys have learned to develop and interpret choreography, perform various works, reflect on dance and experiment with various popular dance styles. The Boys Dance group have won awards over the years such as “Community Friendship” and “Most Entertaining Performance” competing alongside Primary and Secondary School performances at the Meraki Festival 2018 and 2019.

Whitford Catholic Primary School students have the opportunity to engage in our community outreach through the Kids of Mercy. Students in Years 1 – 6 may enrol to attend Mercyville Aged Care on a Friday at lunchtime. The visits are brief, only 20 minutes, but they bring a lot of joy to the Sisters and ladies at Mercyville. Children should expect to be rostered on at least 3 times per year and rosters are published in School Stream with a note sent home. On the Friday that students attend, they would need to meet promptly in front of the office when the second lunch bell sounds. We then proceed to Mercyville and meet with the ladies in their common room for a chat, show and tell or a music performance. For more information, visit the Kids of Mercy category on School Stream.
