Grade 8/9 Band Trip to Fredericton was a tremendous success. We performed 3 concerts (each one successively increasing in quality and confidence), toured the Magnetic Hill Zoo, had great meals, fun times with bowling and laser tag, had a productive music reading session at the St. Thomas University Music Dept., enjoyed an amazing tour of Fredericton at night and outdoor theatre performance by the Calithumpians Theatre Group, and some students took in a tour of the St. Thomas Forensic Anthropology Department. Special thanks to our chaperones - Trish Giles, Chris Giles, Carla Clancey, Sheilagh O'Brien, Debbie Kavanaugh, Kevin Colvey, and Leslie Ghanai. Their leadership and assistance on this trip cannot be acknowledged enough - thank you for everthing - you made this trip a huge success for our students.
