30th anniversary gala

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The 30th anniversary gala was a success, attracting over 200 parents. The Bardolators, the Honour Band, the Jazz Band and actors from the annual musical all performed to everyone’s delight. Elysia Baynes-Barnes, anchor of the late night news on Global TV and a RWA grad, was the special host of the gala. And she did a really great job.

The evening raised over $4,000 and produced $2,000 in profit toward the renovation of the auditorium. Foundation members and volunteer parents, Ginger Swift, Lindsay McLeod, Erica Brown. Diana Charlton and Jasmin Uhthoff, coordinated all the work. More than one parent was heard saying that all the gala volunteers had actually made the auditorium look attractive for once, a stark contrast to the worn out and sad appearance we’re all so used to.
