Mata­mata Col­lege dance moves

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Gen­er­a­tion Z, which is the cur­rent gen­er­a­tion, was the theme of the ninth an­nual year 11 dance night at Mata­mata Col­lege. The June 30 event, which is an NCEA as­sess­ment for PE, had eight PE classes com­pet­ing against each other to take out the top spot. The theme was ex­plored through a va­ri­ety of ways. One class took the premise that their gen­er­a­tion was the best gen­er­a­tion and ex­plored what had led to their gen­er­a­tion by con­trast­ing it to pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tions. Another class went next gen­er­a­tion with a space theme and another ex­plored their child­hood. Even the teach­ers got up and per­formed their own dance called the Evo­lu­tion of Teach­ing with dance moves to rep­re­sent dif­fer­ent things done in a school day like stu­dents ask­ing for ex­ten­sions for work and hand­ing out achieve­ment stan­dards and leav­ing assem­bly in an or­derly fash­ion. The win­ning class was 11.1 taught by Mr Ball.
