Schools on the Saanich Peninsula held open houses recently, celebrating their strengths and spirit.

Events at both Stelly’s Secondary and Parkland Secondary opened their doors to prospective new students and their parents, as well as to the community in general.

Programs, such as Parkland’s Marine Academy and Stelly’s drama department, were highlights of the open houses. Parkland also played host to the opening of the 3A boys basketball Island finals and a boisterous crowd of students and parents cheered on the local boys.

Both athletics and academics were in full focus during the events, as students put their best feet forward.
