Congratulations to all of our Currie-Henderson kids who achieved spectacular results at the 2014 NSW State Ceili Championships! Frances and Laura can now call themselves State Champions, after they took out the U/16 Girls 2-Hand against stiff competition. Our Senior Figure also placed first, after some last minute changes to the dance. Very impressive work, girls

Our tiny tots also pulled together marvellously to take 3rd place in the 8-Hand… A wonderful achievement, especially considering this was the first big competition for many of the kids.

Congratulations to all of the Currie-Henderson boys and girls who competed at the 2014 NSW State Solo Championships. We had some wonderful results, but special mention must go to Miss Brittany, who came back to the stage after a two year break, only to achieve her best-ever result… 5th in NSW! Congratulations to Brittany and everyone who represented the school so wonderfully well.

In May 2014, three of our senior dancers made their debut at the 2014 AIDA NSW Debutante Ball. Meg, Evangeline and Michelle were the picture of elegance as they were presented to the Patron of the Australian Irish Dancing Association, our very own Miss Jan. Jack was as charming as ever as he suited up to partner one of the girls.

A number of our Currie-Henderson pupils also performed at the ball – a pleasure to watch as always!
