Christ King School hosts an evening of dance with MuchMusic

On Thursday evening, Feb. 2 the Christ King Catholic School (CKCS) gymnasium had been transformed into a modern dance space, complete with gigantic screen and great music.

The school was hosting its annual junior high dance and had invited other schools in the community, such as Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus (only Middle School), Erskine and Big Valley.

“We have been hosting Junior High dances for a number of years now,” said Tara Kroes, CKCS staff and main organizer. “MuchMusic was suggested by a teacher three years ago and this tends to be the biggest dance of the year for us.”

For the past two years, MuchMusic’s DJ Shawn has been spinning the numbers at the event and did a superlative job that evening as students came out in groups, visited with one another and filled the dance floor.

“Since our Junior High is smaller we do all that we can to give them a chance to socialize among themselves and students from other schools,” Kroes explained. “Within the school we run Spirit Squad where the Junior Highs plan different events for the entire school like Spirit Days and Dance Party Fridays.”

Christ King hosts three separate dances throughout the school year.

Besides, the school is actively involved in sports and have numerous sports teams.

Kroes said that the students are widely involved in diverse projects, such as the yearbook club.

“Our yearbook club is made up of Junior High student​s, who design the school yearbook,” said Kroes. “Overall, our Junior Highs often lead a lot of our events throughout the year and take on the big leadership roles in our school.”

This year the school put together a three-day ski trip to the mountains.

“We took a group of students to Lake Louise in January,” Kroes added. “We also have a junior high health team this year led by Miss Lozeau, and for the spring we are hopefully going to be able to put together a three-day camp trip for the Junior Highs as well.”
