Junior High Students’ Union hosts dance social

The William E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus gymnasium was transformed into a dance floor with lights and music.

The William E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus gymnasium was transformed into a dance floor with lights and music as the junior high students’ union hosted an evening of dancing for grades 7-9, on Friday, Nov. 6.

“Our Junior High Students’ Union hosted this dance and it was the first for this school year, and is an integral part of our regular yearly students’ union function because it is important for our students to be able to get together and socialize in a controlled environment outside of the regular school day,” said Norbert Baharally, principal, William E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus.

Students were asked to don their halloween costumes as an incentive to get a dollar off their admission into the dance, while they also had option of donating a non-perishable food item for the same discount.

The DJs for the night were high school students, Jordan Lee and Kalie Tulan who played popular numbers and varied the pace throughout the evening between fast and slow numbers.

Just outside the gymnasium parents had volunteered their time to sell beverages and snacks at the concession.

Speaking of the evening, Baharally thought it was a “great success”.

“I thought that the evening was a great success and that the students had a lot of fun with about 120 attending the event. All in all it was a great night,” added Baharally. “I would like to thank our student DJs as well as the teachers and parents for volunteering their time to help chaperone and also in helping to run our concession for the evening.”

There will be other dances throughout the year and Baharally hopes that there would be more students in attendance.
