Kidovate is back! Kidovate is a fun, free entrepreneurship initiative of UVIC’s Gustavson School of Business for middle school and high school students. Kidovate aims to develop entrepreneurial spirit and acumen by encouraging participants to sell goods or services on Kidovate Market Day. This year’s market will be held on Saturday, April 13th at The Bay Centre. Last year more than 120 young entrepreneurs participated in Kidovate. We do our best to keep the high school students on the same floor of the Bay Centre, and if there is sufficient demand from high school students, we may be able to hold a separate high school market on Sunday, April 14th. There is no cost to participate. 

Tickets for Musical Theatre production of Mean Girls (PG13) are on sale. Look at the theatre   seating to choose your seats then call the Accounts office to reserve (250-655-2736,( 8-3). Adults $18 // Students $14. Saturday Matinee $14 for everyone.  There will be a small concession during intermission, cash only.  Live streaming is available for the Friday and Saturday night shows. Cost is $15 for an individual or $30 for a household. Thank you for your support!

The BGC Youth Program has cooking classes at their Central Saanich location for youths 12-16.
