The first public event at the new St. Joseph High School in Red Deer will showcase both student talent and the new facility.
The Red Deer Regional Catholic Education Foundation is hosting the event called Spotlight on March 16 at the high school, which opens in September.
The Spotlight evening includes student entertainment, art displays, school tours and a silent auction.
The high school is for Grade 10-12 students and will initially have a capacity of 900. It’s anticipated that between 550 and 600 students in the first year will register when it opens. Graeme Daniel is the first principal of St. Joseph High School.
In the future the school could be expanded to 1,200 students, which would be similar in size to the school district’s other high school in Red Deer, Notre Dame High School.
The new school is located at 100, 2700 67th St., essentially at 30th Avenue and 67th Street, which is on the southwest edge of the new Evergreen neighbourhood.
Spotlight general admission starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 each or $20 for a family. To purchase tickets, visit eventbrite.ca or at the door.
Spotlight is the 2017 fundraising event for Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools through the Red Deer Regional Catholic Education Foundation. Funds are directed to students through various projects, scholarships and initiatives that are not provided by Alberta Education.
