Winter Arts Night 2023

On December 14, 2023, Chisholm Academy’s wonderful Winter Arts Night was held and was a smashing success! The night included the Drama Club’s performance of “The Election” – a comedic play with an important message – written by Jonathan Turner Smith, and led by Chisholm director, Ms. Edwards. The cast and crew did a magnificent job with the performance and are excited to bring this show to the 2024 NTS DramaFest provincial competition on February 29th, where they will take place in the first round of the competition, competing with other schools at the district level.

Following this performance, we enjoyed an outstanding Bucket Drumming performance of The Trans Siberian Orchestra’s “Carol of the Bells” by our Grade 7s and 8s, led by director, Mrs. Moss, and assistant directors, Mrs. Chambers and Mr. Pommier. There was also beautiful Chisholm student artwork displayed throughout the gym created by our Elementary and High School students, and Mrs. Tsygipa’s Food and Nutrition class catered the event, supplying numerous delicious treats that were much enjoyed by all. The evening then concluded with a fantastic rendition of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” by JJ Purnell on bass, directed by Mr. Pommier. Thank you to all of the students and staff who made this evening such a wonderful success, and to all of the families who came out to support our students and our Arts programmes.
