This spectacular concert shows that music can be found anywhere — from a full size professional orchestra to everyday household items. Come and listen to a full orchestra perform Kitchen Concerto, Sabre Dance, Carnival of the Animals, Star Wars, 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky, Mission Impossible and more!

Hello 2019/2020 Grade 10, 11 and 12 Students, Parents, and Guardians,

My name is Eric Vanee and I will be your Grad Advisor for the 2019/2020 school year. The reason I am your Grad Advisor is that I have been assigned the HCOS region known as Lower Mainland East (basically all families in our school east of 200 Street up to Hope approximately)

Recently we held two Grad Program Info Sessions to help you with your course planning for the 2019/2020 school year.

Here are the recordings:

Here also are the websites we recommend for planning your course selection:

We hope you find this information helpful.
