VIDEO: Trafalgar students mob Baker Street to show off dance moves

Submitted

Grade 6 students from Trafalgar Middle School took their learning on the road Thursday morning.

Pedestrians and parents were treated to a public display of learning as 140 students flash mobbed the 400 Block of Baker St.

“It was so much fun,” said student Nadia Garant. “We have been working hard on this dance for two weeks. It was cool to be able to do it somewhere else other than the gym.”

The dance was performed to the song “Hall of Fame” by The Script. Teacher Amy Strachan, who led the choreography, says it is a great song for this group because of its positive message.

“At Trafalgar our motto is ‘we build each other up,’ and that really showed during this process, the students took a lot of leadership, in teaching each other and supporting each other.”

French Immersion teacher Jaclyn Dexter, who was part of the performance, was all smiles and couldn’t help but to take the opportunity to celebrate the students and school.

“We have amazing students, staff and programming at Trafalgar. From woodworking, to robotics, to international cuisine – and as we saw here today in the middle of our community a great arts and phys-ed program.”
