Added Matinees for Elementary "Journeys" Performance

November 30, 2017

Dear Victoria School Families,

We acknowledge that some families have been unable to secure tickets to the elementary performance, “Journeys”. In order to ensure there is another opportunity for families to attend “Journeys”; we are excited to announce that we will be offering a matinee performance for each show.

  • Show 1 (Sutherland’s a.m. & p.m. Kindergarten, Grade 2, Grade 4, and Grade 6) will have a matinee performance on December 20 at 1:30 p.m.; in the Eva O. Howard Theatre.
  • Show 2 (Kapicki’s a.m. Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 3, Grade 5) will have a matinee performance on December 21 at 1:30 p.m.; in the Eva O. Howard Theatre.

Students will be dismissed at 3:10 p.m.; from their classrooms after the matinees. Students will be expected to return to their classrooms at 5:30 p.m.; for their evening performance (Grades 1-6).

Tickets for afternoon matinees will be the same price as the evening performances at $10.00 each. Please contact our Victoria School Box Office (780-392-3534) or visit the General Office to purchase tickets starting Monday, December 4. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door 45 minutes prior to each performance.

 If you would like to exchange your evening tickets for afternoon matinee tickets, please do so through the main office or the box office.

Kindergarten Schedule Change

As part of this adjusted schedule, Kindergarten students are asked to shift their attendance from the morning to the afternoon on their performance day:

  • Ms. Sutherland’s classes should arrive on the afternoon of Wednesday, December 20 by 12:20 p.m.
  • Mrs. Kapicki’s class should arrive on the afternoon of Thursday, December 21 by 12:20 p.m.
  • A.M. Kindergarten’s noon busing has been cancelled on those days and parents will be responsible for transportation; ensuring their children get to school and home from this matinee.
  • P.M. Kindergarten students are able to bus as usual.
  • A.M. Kindergarten students and p.m. Kindergarten students (who do not take the bus) should be picked up at 3:10 p.m.; from their classrooms.
  • All Kindergarten students must return at 5:15 p.m.; to their classrooms for their evening performance.

Please note that students are required to wear their costumes for their matinee performance as well as their evening performance.

Thank you for your ongoing support as we look to providing opportunities for our families to celebrate student learning.

Victoria School of the Arts - Inspiring Creativity

Welcome to Victoria School of the Arts where students are passionately engaged!‌‌

The heart of Victoria School lies in the joy to learn, the passion to create and the wonder of discovery. Victoria School of the Arts offers a dynamic and diverse program designed to challenge you academically, while encouraging you to explore and develop your unique artistic skills and talents. Staff and students consistently bring their best as they work collaboratively to inspire an atmosphere of creativity, self-discipline, integrity and dedication, which invites all students to excel in their arts and academic pursuits.

The arts have the power to transform the learning experience. They provide the foundation for a rich and meaningful education nurturing authentic connections across the curriculum in partnership with a strong and rigorous academic program. We know that creativity, ingenuity, empathy and innovation are the keys to success in today’s complex, changing world and as such, Victoria students are fortunate to attend Canada’s only K-12 school offering arts programming in Dance, Music, Visual Art, New Media and Drama within the framework of all 4 of the International Baccalaureate Programmes.

At Victoria School students are invited to build upon their creative capacity to inquire with deep curiosity, to think unconventionally, to question the norm and imagine and reflect on new perspectives in order to become more passionate and compassionate members of the local and global community.

To walk through the doors of the school and into our vibrant hallways, is often enough for visitors to sense an energy that is unlike any other school. This atmosphere is nurtured by a respect for community, creativity and responsibility that extends from individual to ensemble. This must be what leads so many of our students and families to say that Victoria School of the Arts feels like ‘home’!
