The youth team performed two dress rehearsals today for Ecole Powerview School.  The high school students watched the performance in the morning, while middle years students watched it in the afternoon.

The youth team looked fantastic.  They were decked out in Scottish dress and clothing from the 1800s.

The staff and students were very impressed by the work that has been put into the show.
