dancing and much more . . . .

We hope to start the Dayboro students on Dance exams in Term 4 of this year and would also like to get “Song & Dance” and Drama classes up and running in 2008.

Our Dayboro studio held its Open Day for 2008 at the Dayboro Community Hall on Wednesday 30th January  We had teachers, students doing demonstrations, uniforms and school information packs were available on the day. 

Recently, our Dayboro Head Teacher – Mrs Karen Mellers – accompanied me and 13 of our students to Melbourne where we chaperoned the students who were attending the Australian Ballet School Summer School. I have attached a photo of Karen with the students (aged 10yrs-17yrs) at the foyer of the Australia Ballet Centre.

HISTORY

PNG was settled more than 30,000 years ago, although the first European sighting was made in 1512 by Portuguese explorers. It was named New Guinea by the Dutch explorers who followed. Missionaries and traders exerted a great influence, and today cultural heritage is largely preserved by small, independent villages.  The country was initially divided between the Dutch, Germans and British. Australia took control of the British sector in 1905, and later captured the German sector during World War I.  The country, fully independent since September 16, 1975, has a freely elected democratic government. Papua New Guinea became the 142nd member of the United Nations on October, 10, 1975 and is also a member of the British Commonwealth. Strong ties to Australia remain.
