Students in Groups A through Y watched as the roller derby league players demonstrated how to skate, stop, fall down, and win a skating bout! The Derby Dames were dressed in team attire and took questions from the students. The Greenvillle Derby Dames also gave a donation to Camperdown Academy to help support the non-profit school for kids with dyslexia.
