It was once Prince Rupert Secondary School’s grad tradition, lasting over 60 years, to throw a fashion show as a fundraiser towards prom.

Last year may have been PRSS’ last fashion show, but not for Charles Hays Secondary School. On Thursday, April 19 at the Lester Centre, CHSS’ first fashion show will take place at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the show are available at the door. The theme this year is Surfing the Internet.

For the past three months, the grad students have practiced immensely for the show, either learning steps or lines, and undoubtedly had some great times while at it. This fun and hilarious event will have tons of entertaining skits, dances, modeling and extra performances, which the grads will be presenting.

The main organizers, Jillian LeBlanc and Molly Coburn, did an excellent job getting the grads involved in the various activities and for organizing the event with the help of teachers and staff at the high school.

If all goes well, the fashion show will be the start of CHSS’s new tradition.
