Band & Music

Hollyburn Elementary is pleased to offer a dynamic Band and Choir program under the direction of Mr. Feige. The Band program has two levels: Beginning and Intermediate. The Beginning Level is geared towards Grade 6 or 7 students with no experience on any band instrument, while Intermediate Band is designed for students who have at least one-year experience.

Here are just a few benefits for children involved in a band
program:

  • Students develop discipline and pride while learning to play an instrument;
  • Band is a true team sport – everyone works together and everyone “wins”;
    Research shows that students who study music perform better in other subject areas;
  • Students are prepared for high-level instruction and fun involvement in band at the secondary level.

If your child is interested in joining the band program, please fill out a band registration form available on the district website.
Any questions, comments, or concerns you may have please contact cfeige@wvschools.ca.

We are looking forward to a fantastic year of celebrating the Arts. ​

ELL

At Hollyburn Elementary School, English Language Learners (ELL) are supported using a variety of methods. Students may be given instruction in a small group setting. Students will focus on learning new vocabulary, sentence and paragraph structure, English grammar, and Canadian customs. Additionally, students may be supported through a “push-in” model. ELL students may work in class with support from an ELL teacher, or work in a small group on classroom themed activities. We strive to further your child’s understanding of the English language at his or her individual level.
