On  the day you attend,  the graduating student and 2 guests  (bubble of three max), will enter the school on the north side of the building ( Doors closest to Smyth street ) enter  through cafeteria doors . Your bubble  group of 3 will be directed towards your cap and gown staging area. Once you have your cap and gown you will be directed to the auditorium in your bubble. The  graduate will walk across the stage,  the 2 guests will be able to take pictures  ( please bring your own camera ) while on the stage. The  bubble of three  will be directed through front doors all the while staying in your bubble of three. Upon exiting the auditorium  you will be directed outside for more pictures on the front lawn. You will return the gown, collect your swag bag and off you go for the summer !!  

 Asynchronous classes 

On  June 18 and June 21 your  grade 12 classes will be taught Asynchronously to allow students to prepare and attend the day. 


Guests are encouraged to bring their own camera to take photos. We are arranging to have one photo station  for a staff member to take a bubble photo of the graduate and 2 guests. We will share these photos at a late date
