On Thursday, January 16th, ten of our grade 12 art students hosted an exhibition of their work. Their teacher and mentor, Ms. Inglis expressed her pride in their work and their future in programs such as architecture, design and costumes.

The theme of the show was “Takes Wing” which signified the fact that students will be leaving us soon and moving on to the next phases of their lives and educational careers. The theme was further defined by each of the students creating a personal interpretation of a bird of their choice.

He is internationally recognized as a pioneer of Pan education and we were lucky enough to have him stop by and give our music classes some tips.
