Chisnallwood Intermediate shakes off uncertainty

Last updated 12:59 23/02/2013

Uncertainty over proposed school reforms hasn't deterred pupils at Chisnallwood Intermediate from having some fun and joining the latest viral craze. 

The school is earmarked to close and become part of the Aranui Learning Community Cluster with Wainoni Primary, Avondale Primary, and Aranui Primary.

The video shows over 200 students and staff dancing the Harlem Shake, a popular track that has spread over the internet.

The clip has been recreated by a variety of groups and always begins with a masked individual dancing alone and seemingly unnoticed, before cutting to a scene of a larger group of costumed individuals dancing. 

The school's fate is still unknown, with a consulation period set to end on March 7.
