Assessment Week Rehearsal Schedule

Next week from the 21st to the 24th is Assessment Week at Cariboo. During that time, there will be no regular classes in session, however, students are expected to attend any assigned tutorial time. Taking a week off from rehearsals simply isn’t possible for us as we prepare for our February performances, and therefore, we will be having rehearsals during that week. Please click below for rehearsal times. Please note that these rehearsals are mandatory, unless there is a scheduling conflict (i.e., Capstone meeting, numeracy assessment, etc.).
