Students are invited to join the Middle School Dance Troupe. Dance is a universal language that breaks down cultural barriers and unites communities. Students develop dance skills and techniques by learning a choreographed piece accompanied by contemporary music. As students become more confident, they learn to choreograph dances themselves. Students perform at assemblies, family fun days and the school Thanksgiving night.
Palmerston and Rural Regional Schools (PARRS)
Interested students may have the opportunity to form a team and participate in sports at an inter-school level.
Small groups of interested students have the opportunity to train and compete in the NT Orienteering Challenge. This is open to students of all levels, in pairs or individuals.
Every second year, PCS Middle School offers students the opportunity to take part in a life changing experience by going to Cambodia on a mission trip to assist with rural village development. This is achieved through agricultural projects in some of the poorest areas of Phnom Penh (Capital City) and to Ko Ki.
This is organised in partnership with a non-profit organisation called “Raw Impact” (http://rawimpact.org/). Students also visit the S21 Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh and explore the famous Angkor Was temples in Siem Reap.
The focus is to be part of making a difference in the lives of others for no personal gain and to have the opportunity to learn and reflect on the devastation caused by communist leader, Pol Pots in 1975-79.
