Teens selected to go to Paris for competition Continued from page 1. The competition would be taking place between November 23 and 27. The group would be competing in duets and special choreographed dancing as well as traditional highland dancing. The group, who dance with Scoti Dance, would be the only group from Wellington going and could be the only group from New Zealand. Taylor Jane said the group had wanted to go since last year and had been fundraising ever since. “It all started last year when we saw a video and we thought – ‘hey we want to do that,’” she

explained. “We missed last year but we decided to go this year.” Taylor Jane has been dancing for 15 years and has performed internationally in the past. She said she was most excited to be going with her group of friends and to be dancing at Disneyland Paris. “Having the competition actually at Disneyland is really exciting. “You don’t normally get to actually dance there,” she said. The group would continue fundraising for their trip and would be busking outside the stadium ahead of the Lions vs All Blacks match on Saturday.

“We’re looking after the children’s wellbeing,” she said. Plunket staff were on hand in their mobile bus to measure children’s heads for a free correctly sized helmet and to give parents information on health. “We’ll be running classes on hand washing, how to blow their nose and things like that soon,” Plunket staffer Sian Macfadyen said. Sue said she was pleased to see so many children getting their free helmets and said it worked in with Montessori’s visions for learning. “Montessori is about building futures for children and that vision is realised by sharing information. “The vision for the community is building futures together. “Growing up independently and preparing children for lifelong learning,” she said.
