William King Elementary (WKES) is a Primary to Grade 6 school
nestled in the scenic village of Herring Cove.



Spring Musical

William King Elementary is proud to present The Trial of the Big Bad Wolf! Our choir and grade six students have been working hard to learn songs, movement, and lines to put on this 1950’s themed court-room drama of what happens when the 3 Little Pigs decide to take that Big Bad Wolf to court. We will have a dress rehearsal for the school to enjoy at 9:00, a matinee for parents or grandparents at 11:00, with a final big show at 6:30. All of our students’ families are welcome to attend the evening show and we will have a donation collection at the door.  A big thank you to Mme. Cheyne & Mr. Morrison for all of their help with the musical, and of course to the students who have been working so hard both at school and at home. It will be a fantastic show!
