Bringing dancing fun to the school community

A BOOT-scootin' bush dance will have students, teachers and strangers shine up their cowboy shoes, throw on an Akubra and boogie the night away.

The dance will raise funds for the Wondai P-9 State School's chaplaincy program.

On the night, dancers will be walked through the steps before the music is turned on and a sweat works up.

Wondai P-9 school chaplain Janelle Allen said the school hoped to attract older generations.

"There will be old-time dancing so the older dancers can show the younger ones how it's done," Ms Allen said.

"We're encouraging everyone and anyone to take part in the dancing.

"The more fun the better."

Ms Allen works at the school three days a week covering social, emotional and spiritual support of students, staff and the school community.

"There is a real need for support for students in schools," Ms Allen said.

"To have someone who is just going to be there for them and is non-judgemental - someone they can bounce things off, receive good advice, and get help with schooling."

The bush dance is open to all members of the community and will take place at the Wondai P-9 State School Hall on Friday, May 29.

A sausage sizzle and lucky door tickets are included in the $5 entry fee.
