Graduation Assemblies

Grade 12 students receive crucial information about graduation, post-secondary opportunities, and scholarship information at Graduation Assemblies. Grad assemblies are mandatory, and attendance will be taken.

At the assembly in late November students will be notified if they are still in a position to graduate and able to participate in grad activities.  It is very important for students in Grade 12 to attend all the grad assemblies.

Assemblies will be announced at least one week in advance through the daily announcements and on the school website under News and Events at Upcoming Events and on the school’s online Calender.

Graduation Newsletter

Parents and Guardians – look out for our GRAD NEWSLETTERS which will include all the details about Grad.  They will be emailed home and sent home with your kids in November, February, April and May.

Post-secondary Opportunities

  •  Discover UVic provides an opportunity for students in Grades 11 and 12 to learn about our academic programs and support services while experiencing our campus for yourself.
  • For more information about BC Post-Secondary Visit Day, visits from UBC, McGill and other universities see the Grad 2020 Website

Grad Pictures

  • Grad photos will be taken in December (sign up details will come out 4-5 weeks prior). Retake dates will be in the new year.
  • Students will receive their graduation portrait in the folder handed to them during the recognition ceremony.  Students who miss their Grad photo date will be handed a blank folder during the ceremony.  Students must sign up in front of the office closer to the picture date.
  • Students must have a graduation portrait taken if they want their photo to be included in the school yearbook.  There is no charge for this single portrait and all students are encouraged to make sure they have one taken during Grad Photos.
  • See the Grad 2020 Website for more information about Grad photos
