September 29 @ 5:30 pm - 10:30 pm
You are invited to an elegant evening of dinner, dancing, entertainment, and silent & live auctions in support of the Delta School District’s Performance Arts Academies and Farm Roots: a ground breaking mini school
Your support of two innovative programs that offer high school students something different:
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.
Fine Arts Academies: Dance, Film Acting, Film Production, Performance and Visual Effects
The Delta School District Fine Arts Academies pair students in grades 8-12 who love the Fine Arts alongside Master Artists from Vancouver’s vibrant arts community. Students get to immerse themselves in their chosen craft and attend classes every other afternoon with working professionals. Whether it’s attending dress rehearsals or backstage tours with the Performance Academy, or working with industry standard software in the brand new Visual Effects Academy, students are encouraged to embrace their passions and look beyond the classroom door to exciting careers in Vancouver! Come and create original works with us! #DoWhatYouLove!
