B.A.S.E. PROGRAM TO PRESENT FOURTH ANNUAL CREATIVE ARTS FESTIVAL

Repercussion Theatre

MONTREAL, JUNE 5, 2012– The English Montreal School Board (EMSB) B.A.S.E. Daycare Program will host its end-of-year festival on Wednesday, June 6 (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and Thursday, June 7 (11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.) at Royal Vale School  (5851 Somerled Avenue) in NDG.

The festival is called EMSB BASE Reveals Their Talent. This fourth annual Creative Arts Festival will showcase the different talents and expertise of our B.A.S.E daycare students through films, television shows, music videos, animations, live choreography and more.

B.A.S.E. students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 have been working diligently since October to show their multimedia projects and live performances at this festival. The students executed all projects, from conception to finished products. A total of 21 daycares are taking part of the festival over the course of two days.
B.A.S.E students will also give a live performance of the B.A.S.E theme song at each festival showing. Daycare Services recently created a new identity called The Before and After School Enriched (B.A.S.E) Daycare Program. The new name was unveiled at a press conference held at John Caboto Academy in Ahuntsic last January.
