Spring Break
by Doug Caley - Wednesday, 6 March 2019, 10:14 AM

The last day of school prior to this year's  Spring Break is Friday, March 15. That day students have the opportunity of spending the afternoon at Panorama watching the annual Viking Cup game.  Students will be dismissed early at 2:00 p.m.  Those riding buses will be returned to North Saanich School in time to catch school buses home.

The week following Spring Break is the school closure week, meaning that there is no school from March 16th to 31st inclusive.  The first day back from the break will be Monday, April 1, 2019, when school resumes at its regular 9:00 start time.

SHOWCASE: What's Next?
by Doug Caley - Monday, 4 March 2019, 1:10 PM

Now that Audtions are over, what's next?  Well, first, there are a few groups that couldn't audition the first time around.  So, those Acts have either set up auditions, or will be auditioning on Tuesday, April 2.

However, whether you've auditioned or not, you now have 2 months to finalize your Act!  We recommend that you practice.  Take advantage of Spring Break and perfect your part in the performance.  You can also be thinking about other details such as your costume.

We'll be posting a tentative Act Schedule fairly soon.  It will be both on the Showcase Bulletin Board as well as here on our web site.
