Take in Parkland Secondary

High school hosting community open house next Thursday, February 27

Students look over displays during a recent trades expo at Parkland Secondary School. The school is hosting an open house this month which provide a sampling of the programs that take place at the school.

Parkland Secondary School is throwing its doors open to the public next week for a community-oriented open house.

“We’ve held an open house the last two years and this year we’re aiming to expand the concept by opening it up to the community,” explained the school’s principal Lizanne Chicanot.

“Open houses are something secondary schools all over the area are doing and they’re a great concept. It’s such a pleasure to be able to bring families and community members into the school to see what happens here.”

This year the school will offer dinner (chilli and bun for $2) and assorted activities for children like carnival games, hands-on activities and Panorama’s inflatable obstacle course.

“We just want people and families to come out and enjoy the evening.

“It’s a way for us to show people the connections between their community and the school,” Chicanot added.

The night will, of course, also feature demonstrations from some of the school’s programs like the Parkland Marine Institute, the Parkland Judo Academy and the Parkland Hockey Academy.

“We’re also going to have some members from the local First Nations there doing some drumming,” said Chicanot.

The Parkland Secondary School open house takes place Thursday, Feb. 27 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
