Drama Class Going to the NAC


On April 13, 2017, Miss MacDonald’s Grade 10 drama class will be travelling to the National Arts Centre in Ottawa to see the play “Vigilante,” by Jonathan Christenson. This amazing opportunity is also available to students who took drama class last semester.

The play is based on a true story about the Donnelly family from southern Ontario in the late 1800’s. In this retelling, the Donnellys have come back to tell their side of the story about the unsolved massacre of their notorious family. This fantastic learning experience will provide students with the chance of seeing a play performed live and to see professional actors onstage in person.

Coffee House

Annual Coffee House at St. Joes might be cancelled!?

Got talent? Want to show your friends and family? If so, Coffee house is a place where students at St. Joes can express their talents and have a good time.

Every year students audition to have a chance to show off their talent in front of their family, friends and peers. Unfortunately, this year not many students have auditioned, so the Coffee House may not happen. So whether you have a comedy act, a play, singing or dancing, you can audition for Coffee House. Auditions are on October 26th after school or the 28th at lunch hour. Hope to see you there!
