For Immediate Release:
Monday, April 8, 2013 – West Vancouver: West Vancouver School District is proud to announce the launch of Lighthouse Festival 2013 – a Creative and Performing Arts Showcase.
This unique celebration kicks off on Monday, April 15 in Park Royal South and will highlight the amazing fine arts work being done by students and staff in all 17 of our public schools.
“We are honoured to act as the venue for this series of creative expressions by the youth of our community. This is the first year of what we hope will become a spring tradition here in West Vancouver and at Park Royal,” says Nancy Small, Director of Marketing and Sustainability for Park Royal.
Visual art displays as well as choral, theatre, dance and band performances by Kindergarten – Grade 12 students will be featured during the festival. Many students have spent years honing their skills under the direction of inspiring music, theatre, dance, and art specialists teaching in our schools.
“We look forward to sharing the exceptional talents of our staff and students with the community and are very proud of our tradition of excellence in the creative and performing arts,” says Lynne Tomlinson, Director of Instruction with the West Vancouver School District.
The school district is partnering with Park Royal and the North Shore News to provide this unique opportunity. “We are proud to sponsor the Lighthouse Festival and help celebrate the talents of the students of the West Vancouver School District. We believe it is important to foster growth and encourage children to be creative and express themselves in various forms of art,” says Neetu Shokar, Marketing and Promotions for the North Shore News.
