Key Stage 3 girls at Albany Academy showed they had the moves when they took part in the school’s annual Dance Competition. Students, who were aided by Young Leaders from the Year 10 and Year 11 GCSE PE classes, performed a range of dance routines trying to impress the judges.
Key Stage 3 students worked hard for over 4 weeks practicing 3 to 4 times a week during lunch and after school and the standards were very high. The standard of performance was extremely high and the routines were all performed confidently in front of the judges and a large audience.
Young Leaders from Year 10 and 11 guided the competitors through their routines as part of their moderation for their GCSE PE course work and preparation for the Year 10 Leadership unit of their BTEC Sport course. Leadership is an important part of learning how to develop, inspire and progress young people through sport.
PE Teacher, Mrs Milburn, who organised the competition said, “The GCSE and BTEC Leaders did a fantastic job helping all the girls get their routines ready for the competition. The standard was higher than ever and all performers were a credit to their leaders and the school.’
