Stelly’s showcase coming soon

Stelly’s Secondary School is offering a showcase evening next week to promote what the school has to offer to students

Next week, Stelly’s Secondary School is offering a showcase evening to promote what the school has to offer to students.

“The open houses are basically a retention and recruiting campaign that was started at the district level,” said Stelly’s staff member Stu Rhodes. “It’s about showcasing the things that each individual school has to offer. Stelly’s has lots going on including the climbing wall, our trades programs, the french immersion program, athletics, the list goes on.”

Rhodes said the showcase evenings serve as a way for students to choose a school in the district that fits their needs or desires.

“By showing students what each school offers, it gives them a choice in their educational pathway,” he explained.

The showcases run this month and next at Saanich School District secondary schools, with Stelly’s Secondary on Feb. 21 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The Parkland Secondary showcase will run March 7 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and SIDES will also be offering open houses at their two locations, Feb. 20 at the Wilkinson Road location from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and Feb. 27 at the the West Saanich Road location from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The Claremont showcase was held Feb. 7.
