Moree Secondary College students have been busy participating in a variety of extra curricular activities.

Dedicated teachers give their time after school to hold cheer leading, homework club, school of rock, glee club, Aboriginal dancing, musical set design and production, and much more.

A girls fitness group (GFG) runs each Wednesday morning where a different sport or activity is chosen for the young ladies to learn the benefits of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.

Jen at Yoga with Jen, Peta Carroll and the staff at MAAC, Heidi Dell at Crossfit and Suzie Treloar at the Boxing Academy have opened their doors to the students and staff who coordinate the mornings.

In other forms of fitness, Kiara Abrahamsen, Aastha Kumar, Eda Kucukozmen, Tamzin Taunton, Nekiiah Murray Jorjie Warrener and Maddison Thompson meet at breaks as part of the MSC cheer leading team.

The students warm up, practice skills and choreograph their very own routines.

On Tuesday afternoons, a different form of dance is practiced among 20-odd Aboriginal students.

Jason Brown and Janine French hold an Aboriginal dance group for students to learn traditional creation story dances from across Australia.

The students have performed at the block party, Reconciliation Week events and are booked in for NAIDOC Week.

The students will eventually create their own story linked to Kamilaroi culture and will learn to sing in language and play traditional instruments.

A school of rock music program also teaches students how to play and develop their musical talents. Students involved in the program meet after school and, with teachers helping, work on a new piece of rock/pop music each week. Guitars, bass guitars, drums and vocals make up the school of rock.

Homework club runs in the library after school giving students the opportunity to use computers to do assignments and revise with teachers’ help for exams.

Coordinator Miss Kasey Nolan has also been teaching students how to properly use the library system playing scavenger hunts for the students to find certain books.

She said it was also a good way for students to get to know their teachers in a more informal setting as a different teacher attend the club each day.

Meanwhile, more than thirty-five students have been rehearsing for this year’s MSC musical ‘Pitch Perfect’. 

The musical will be held on July 20-21 and tickets go on sale from today.

There will be more to come from the school’s cast and crew.
