Celebration of Dance

Celebration of Dance May 6, 2019
Posted on 05/06/2019
On Monday May 6, 2019, just over 2000 students from the Limestone District School Board and the Algonquin Lakeshore Catholic District School Board gathered on the grounds at Fairfield Elementary School for the Celebration of Dance event.  This culminating event allowed students from participating classes and schools to come together to dance.  11 dances were developed and students learned them in their classes in the weeks leading up to COD.

For each of the dances, a school group led the entire group by going up on the stage and presenting the dance.  Fairfield students were on the stage for 2 different dances!  A huge thanks to our staff who worked specifically with these students to prepare them for leading.

The weather was perfect, the students loved it, and the laughter and sheer joy of dancing together was a highlight of our learning this term.

A huge thanks to KFL&A Public Health and both school boards for supporting this endeavour.  It was a great opportunity to achieve the pillars of the LDSB strategic plan: wellness, innovation & collaboration - in action!
