Banff Music Trip and Fundraiser Update

Published on: November 14, 2017

For the first time since 2005, our Grades 9-10 bands and choirs have been invited to perform at the Canadian Rocky Mountain Festival at the Banff Centre for the Arts from April 10-15, 2018. PAPA will be offering fundraisers throughout the year to alleviate some of the financial cost. These fundraisers will require parental involvement and any money raised by your son/daughter will be applied directly to his/her trip account. Performing Arts students must maintain a mark of at least 75% in their core music courses (band/choir) to be eligible to travel.

There will be an information meeting regarding the trip on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at 7:00 pm in Room 107 (The Fellowship Hall). It is required that the travelling student and at least one parent/guardian be in attendance.

Mom’s Pantry orders will be available for pick up by the trophy case in the Main School hallway on Thursday, November 21 between 3:15 pm-4:00 pm. Since many items are perishable, it is imperative that orders are picked up at this time.

The December fundraiser will be Gift Cards, with an ordering deadline of December 4, 2017. Watch for emails with paperwork to be sent home soon. It is very important that the name of the travelling student is recorded on all fundraising  paperwork so that funds can be allocated to the correct account. Please also be respectful of our community and remember that soliciting church and school staff for donations is not advisable.

Students can expect a hard copy paper invoice of their fundraising efforts to date and monies earned towards their trip by the end of November.

Students travelling to Banff have a deadline of November 17 for their first music trip payment installment.
