You are invited to an elegant evening of dinner, dancing, entertainment, and silent & live auctions in support of the Delta School District’s Performance Academy with the Vancouver Opera and Farm Roots: a ground breaking mini school
Your support of two innovative programs that offer high school students something different:
The Performance Academy with Vancouver Opera
The Performance Academy pairs students who love music and acting with Vancouver Opera’s Master Artists. Students get to attend dress rehearsals, backstage tours, and learn from working professionals in this multi-disciplinary art form. By the end of the program, unique to North America, students create their own show and perform at the VO’s Opera Festival, living their dreams in lights to cheering applause.
Farm Roots: A Ground Breaking Mini School
Farm Roots Mini School invites students in Grades 10, 11 and 12 to take their learning to the land where they get hands-on with core subjects like science, social studies, and business. Through the process of building a farm and growing a sustainable business, students learn from local and global experts at no cost to them. Students can even earn first year university credit. Engaging, relevant, necessary learning for tomorrow’s world: this is what academic looks like.
