Ben Dups won a well-deserved technical award for lighting under extreme circumstances! Congratulations to All the students and a Special thank you to Joy Falk for being their inspirational Teacher Supervisor.
ADMISSIONS by Colleen Neuman - Presented by Cornerstone Christian School - This moving drama had a very clear message about Heaven and God that left the audience with a very warm feeling inside long after the lights came down. All told, it was the perfect way to end the festival. Very simply staged, the focus was on the acting, and all 3 actresses in the play were exceptional. I remembered one of the actors, Chantal Morin, from her performance 4 years ago at Provincials in the play A Thousand Cranes. Here she took on 4 separate roles, but it wasn't until after the play and I had looked in the program that I realized they had all been played by the same person. The simplicity of the production added immeasurably to the overall impact it had on the audience. The last line of the play takes a moment to sink in, and I know there were many teary eyes in the house when the lights came up for the curtain call.
After the performances came the final adjudications, immediately followed by the awards ceremony. Congratulations to Cornerstone Christian School for taking home Best Overall Production for Admissions!

GES Student Captures Provincial Title
Gravelbourg Elementary School student, Alaric E., has captured the provincial title in the Canadian Scholastic Challenge.
Alaric was among more than 3,000 Grade six students from across Canada that participated in the Canadian Scholastic Challenge this year. The competition comprised 100 questions from six categories: General Knowledge (i.e. food, art, sports, music, current events, entertainment, mythology, etc.), Language and Literature, Social Studies (Geography and History), Science, and Mathematics. The questions were not related to a specific curriculum, but were selected to reflect the general knowledge and educational levels expected of Grade six students.
Alaric gained top spot in Saskatchewan with a score 30 points above the national average. Well done Alaric!
