A Look Ahead at 2012


As the calendar year ends, we still have six months left in the school year, and those months are some of our busiest times. Here’s a few of the events we have to look forward to all the way up until Closing Ceremonies.

This month, everyone is welcome to attend the Free the Children Gala on January 22 and Visual Poetry show which debuts on January 9.

Coming up next in our concert season will be the Large Ensembles on February 1 at UVic. At the end of the month, the Senior School musical production of Guys and Dolls will debut on February 29 and run until March 3. Also at the McPherson, Senior School artists will be displaying some of their work starting with an opening reception on February 27.

Middle School musicians will have more than one opportunity to perform, starting with the Middle School Concert on March 12 and continuing with appearances in the Cross-Campus Band Concert on May 28 and Jazz Night on June 7.

Alumni Weekend returns to the campus from May 4 to 6 with soccer, rugby, and all kinds of events for alumni and friends. Career Day for Senior School students will run on May 4.

The annual Keep the Beat music marathon celebrates its 10th anniversary at the school on May 25, and the Arts Council hopes to raise $10,000 for War Child Canada in honour of the milestone.

Over at the Junior School, students will be debuting their opera production of La Cenerentola (Cinderella) on May 28 & 29 at the Royal Theatre.

On June 1, students will get a chance to celebrate the end of the year with Ice Cream Day, an ongoing tradition of commemorating Kyrle C. Symons birthday with a cool treat that is now in its 80th year.


    • Hi Rae

      We’re working on that right now. Tickets are usually sold in the campus shop as well as through the Royal McPherson box office. They should be available soon and you can always contact the box office or ask at the campus shop for more information.

      Glad you are excited for the show!
