Students show off performing and artistic talents at GFSS

Grand Forks Secondary students hosted an art show and play last weekend

Grand Forks Secondary School served as a hub for all things artistic last weekend, when drama students got to take to the stage to perform The Outsiders while just beyond the theatre visual art pieces created by their peers were showcased to the public.

The array of pieces – from etchings to sculptures, sketches, paintings and woodwork – drew keen interest from many attendees, and some students were even able to sell pieces of their creative output. Students from the catering class offered hors d’oeuvres to the patrons.
