MCHS DANCE FESTIVAL
The Meols Cop Dance festival is a highlight in our calendar of exciting events. It was delightful to welcome pupils from Linaker Primary, Kew Woods, Bishop David Shepherd, Churchtown and Norwood Primary to school, and as ever, pupils and our MCHS dancers put on an incredible show. The dance festival provided the opportunity for students to showcase their skills, hard work and determination for both performance and choreography.
Since October half term, each primary school has been working closely with our year 9 dance leaders to prepare a piece for the show. Our dance leaders aim has been to engage, prepare and motivate younger students to enjoy and explore dance.
