Below is a quote from Mrs J Faulkner, a parent at the school

"Yet another fabulous show at PWD. Nurture your child's strengths instead of stressing about their weaknesses. Wonderful today to see all the students cheering each other on - a credit to all the teachers at PWD. It's not just about the performances, it's about the life skills taught. I'm proud to be a PWD Mum! 

The School is important to all of us and this is reflected by the amazing reputation we are so proud of.  With our combined experience, safe teaching methods, enthusiasm and dedication. We believe Pauline Walker Dance & Stage School is the perfect place to find your feet!
