Hey there students of Halifax West! Are you interested in K-Pop? If so then the Halifax West K-Pop club is just the place for you! You can learn choreographies from popular K-Pop groups like BTS, Blackpink, Twice, Seventeen and even more. To join this club you don’t need any prior knowledge on K-Pop or dancing skills but if you do that’s also great. If you’re feeling uncomfortable about dancing but want to join then you can always just spectate. We promise to try our best to make sure everyone feels welcome. Come join us in room C123 starting this Friday at lunch.

The Warrior Shop is going to be opening soon!  To get ready we are having a huge one day sale on our 2019 crew necks and hoodies.  There aren't many left, so there are limited sizes, but what we have left is going for $15 to $20.  The one day sale will happen on Thursday, October 10th at lunch time in room A317.  Cash only.  See you then!
