The Goodwill Shakesphere Festival is coming up and the WFMS grade 8 and 9 kids are going! The students are raising funds to help offset the cost of the trip. You can see the details here: Fundraiser
Each May nearly 350 students and their teachers descend upon the small town of Summerland ready to be involved in one of the richest possible learning experiences. Although “Shakefest” (as the students like to call it) focuses on Shakespeare, it covers an array of subjects such as theatre, art, TV and Video, vocal, writing, improvisation, costume design, set design, acting, makeup and directing. By participating in these workshops and learning about the theatrical process the students experience the transformative power of theatre and the arts.
