Open Days are held in the Spring for interested young people to visit the College, join in various dance workshops and meet the staff and current students. Time is set aside to talk individually with the Principal and to look at how the JHC can help prospective students achieve their aims and ambitions in their future careers.
Students are encouraged to develop their performance skills and take part in our Performance events culminating in their end of year Showcase Cabaret Evening when the annual JHC Awards are presented.
