Many learning opportunities associated with Second City's visit to Bayside. In addition to humour and entertainment, the visit brings the opportunity for students to build on character traits and learning skills.

Second City focuses on collaboration, cooperation, humour and communication skills. The troupe will also focus on the application of drama skills and breaking down barriers to literacy. The troupe's visit comes at an opportune time for Bayside, which recently started its own improv comedy club.

We wish to acknowledge financial assistance from The Hastings and Prince Edward Learning Foundation in making this event possible.
