The first One and All Deb training was held last night and the Echuca College students participating in this event were amazing!
Students were asked to indicate an interest in participating in the deb, to fill a number of roles. The interest from students was overwhelming and a select number of students have been chosen to partner clients from Murray Human Services. Students are also required to act as “Ninjas” and provide additional support and be back up dancers for any absentees.
The connections the students have already made are truly inspirational and we are very proud of all students participating in the deb ball.
The deb set has already learned their first dance and have had lots of giggles in doing so. We had several partners absent due to snow camp, but our ninjas (support crew/back up dancers) stepped in with ease. A special mention to Jason Hanson who stepped in to partner Kara – a non-verbal client of MHS – Kara had a blast and literally squealed with disappointment when the evening finished!
Trainings are on Wednesday evenings 7.30-9pm at the Murray Human Services Hall on High St South. We look forward to the big event on October the 17th.
