Grandparents, and "Grandfriends", are invited to spend an afternoon at West Island College with their extraordinary grandchildren! 

WIC is excited to host its inaugural Grandparents' Day on Wednesday, May 3, 2023.

The afternoon will begin at 1 p.m. with a performance by our Band and remarks from our Head of School. It will conclude at the end of the school day, which is around 3 p.m.

The schedule for the day:
  • Performance by our WIC Band
  • Welcome Address - Erin Corbett, Head of School and CEO
  • Tea, coffee, sweets and treats will be served
  • School tour with your grandchild
Please RSVP
It will be a challenge to make sure we have enough seating and food for all our guests. As such, we ask that you kindly RSVP for the event in advance. Spots are limited. 
Please note: This event is only for grandparents, we look forward to welcoming parents at another time.
Since this is our first Grandparents' Day, we would suggest arriving a little early to get parking at the school or next door at the Calgary Farmers' Market (located at 510 77 Ave SE)

As the school parking lot has very limited spaces, please plan to arrive early. Designated accessible parking spaces are limited and will be in very high demand on Grandparents' Day.

Please contact Mrs. Linda Ryder to see if there are any reserved accessible parking spaces still available.

If you have other needs, we will do our very best to accommodate them. Please be in touch to discuss.
