2018 Spring Fling

This year's Spring Fling production is HairSpray. Organization of this event has begun. Since the announcement of the production, the school has received inquiries about purchasing tickets. It is important to note that ticket sales will not take place until April. It will follow a similar format as previous years, where families will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for matinee/evening performances. As more tickets become available, families will have the opportunity to purchase more tickets. It is recognized that the Spring Fling has become a very popular event. That being said, the school will do its best to accommodate as many as possible based on the limitations of the facility. If you have any questions or would like to help please check with your child's homeroom teacher.

2017 Resolutions presented to the PEI Home and School Federation


In spring, local home and school associations present resolutions to the PEI Home and School Federations for consideration. Resolutions that are passed are forwarded to designated bodies (the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, English Language School Board, etc.) for response, and responses are presented to the members the following autumn. See what was presented at last spring's meeting in the link below.
