Dance teachers Nathan White and Lisa Taristano organized the event which involved a huge amount of activity over three days.

Mr White said: “It was a great day and was great to see students and staff all getting involved in different ways.

“The dance-a-thon students had loads of fun – they were running out of energy by 6pm but after a hot drink break, they soon were buzzing again.”

The fund raiser started on Thursday with a dance performance in the school’s theatre by students.
