THE PACIFIC BELT

icon-standard-med.png

The Pacific Belt is an Irish dancing competition hosted by the school held in Melbourne each year in May. The competition began in 2015 and has quickly become one of Australia's largest school run competitions hosting competitors from across Australia and New Zealand each year.

The Pacific Belt would not be possible without the support of every member of our school community and the generous contribution from our sponsors. It is a great honour for us to bring this event to the greater Irish dancing community.
