STUDENTS experienced a bit of extra cheer towards the end of term as two schools partnered for an event in Merriwa.
Butler College’s cheerleaders visited Merriwa Primary School on December 11 to show off their skills.
Program co-ordinator Corrinne Long said it helped build a strong relationship between the two schools and Butler students get to know the younger students who would join their school for Year 7 next term.
Mrs Long said that helped the transition process, as well as promoting the arts program at Butler College.
She said it also gave the senior students an opportunity to perform and share the joy of performing.
