The cutthroat world of competitive cheerleading meets the fierce rivalries of high school politics and romance.
Campbell is cheer-royalty at Truman High School and her senior year should prove the most cheertastic – she’s been named captain of the squad! But, an unexpected redistricting has forced her to spend her final year of high school at the neighboring hard-knock Jackson High School. Despite having the deck stacked against her, Campbell befriends the dance crew girls and, along with their headstrong and hardworking leader, Danielle, manages to form a powerhouse squad for the ultimate competition – the National Championships.
The End of Year Program will commerce for Year 7 and 8 students on Monday 12 December and run until Monday 19 December. Students are expected at school in full school uniform and the normal absence notes / early leavers polices still apply.
Each Key Learning Area has put a great deal of effort and time into organising the activities, and we expect students to fully participate.
School buses and canteen will operate as normal.
A few things to note:
All students will need their Physical Education uniform on Tuesday 13December.
