Published on isbi School News dated Monday 1st of June 2015

Three St Benedict's School girls have been nominated for the IDTA freestyle scholarship awards which recognise special potential and talent in freestyle dance. Hannah O'Flaherty and Rebecca Pearce (Form Three), and Wairimu Guede (Lower Fourth) particularly impressed the examiner during their last set of dance exams. Their commendation states that 'they had enormous potential and showed real talent and beautiful poise and movement skills.'

The girls are understandably delighted with their awards.
Wairimu: 'I am so excited to be nominated for this scholarship award because it boosts my confidence and it recognises all the hard work I have put into dance this year and last.'

Rebecca: 'This is an amazing thing to have happened to me in dance and it makes me feel happy that I have achieved this nomination so early in the senior school.'

Hannah: 'I am really pleased because I really worked hard for this recognition and it makes me want to keep challenging myself and pushing myself further in dance.'

Dance Teacher Ruth Kestenbaum added: 'The girls have done extremely well and should be very proud of themselves for what they've achieved. From September this year we will offer our Sixth Formers the opportunity to study for the IDTA Grade 5 Freestyle Dance exam which is recognised by OFQUAL on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). This exam is a level 2 qualification and offers 10 credits within the QCF.'
