On Oct 1st the Drama students will have the opportunity to see the musical, Wicked, in Toronto. It is a great opportunity for our students to see a major production.
On October 1st the senior Applied Design students will travel to the Toronto Zoo. The grade 11s will be sketching the animals as research for their Children’s Book Illustrations. The grade 12s will be creating a magazine layout that explores the varied Applied Design jobs that are to be found at the zoo.
It is always exciting to begin another new year. The Arts Department would like to welcome Laura Johnson as our new Dance teacher. As usual we will all be busy with projects, practises and performances.
The Music Department has taken students on a trip to New York City. It is an annual trip that allows Arts students to see the exciting world of the city that never sleeps.

Over 6000 people came to see our musical. Once again the Arts Dept came together to produce a first class experience for the audience and for all of the students involved in the creation of the show.
Only two more rehearsals until our major musical, The Sound of Music, has its first show. I can’t begin to even imagine the number of hours that has gone into this production. Almost every evening and during the weekends there always seemed to be somebody working on something for this show. For the audience it is a show to be watched. For me, it is a culmination of a massive team effort. I usually think about it all as Fun Chaos.
Our grade 12 Fine Art students will be featured at the BAC’s Main Street Gallery for the month of February. Their drawings of the town’s architecture are a perfect fit for History Month. There will be an Open House on February 6th from 3pm to 8pm to showcase their work. Tea and coffee will be served.
