The St Mary's Spring Band trip to Banff was held April 7th to 9th. The students had a great time learning about their instruments and working together to play some great music. They also had some time to explore Banff and surrounding area. A few adventurous students and one chaperone even visited the candy store and ate some crickets! Thank you to Mrs. Gouw, Mrs. Duell, Mrs. McKay, Mrs. Johnston, Mr Grimson and Mr. Unrau for coming with us as chaperones. Your help was greatly appreciated!
