Rossland Summit School plans gala and concert

Rossland Summit School has two upcoming events, a gala and a concert, to showcase what their students have been up to this term.

With the first term of school quickly coming to an end, Rossland Summit School has some upcoming events to showcase what their students have been up to.

The first is the Winter Gala, which will be held at the school on Thursday, Dec. 10 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

“It’s an opportunity for our students to showcase their learning,” said Bud Gregory, vice-principal. “We have an evening where students and teachers choose some of their most significant examples of learning and the post them to bulletin boards, they lay them out on the tables, and it’s an opportunity for parents and family members to come in and take a look at what we’ve been doing here as far as innovative projects and interesting things that the kids have been doing.”

Parents and family can take a tour of the school and check out different projects the kids have undertaken over the term.

The school band will also be performing.

Parents will also have the opportunity to talk to their kids about what they’ve learned.

“It gives our kids an opportunity to talk about what they’ve been doing over the last couple months,” said Gregory.

The second event the school has coming up is the Christmas concert on Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the RSS auditorium.

The concert will feature a number of performances.

“It is a variety of plays and songs,” explains Gregory.

The school’s drama teacher begins working with the students weeks in advance to prepare an entertaining show.

“Our drama teacher Lisa Henderson works with classes, a variety of students throughout the building, in putting together a Christmas concert, says Gregory. “It’s a great performance.”
