Graduation season is here and ceremonies will once again be a little different from tradition.
At Hope Secondary, each student will have their own personal ceremony in the school, with their chosen friends and family. But there will be a chance for the community to celebrate the students’ achievements as well.
Hope Secondary principal Rosalee Floyd says there will be a community parade on Saturday, June 5, and friends and family are invited to drive by the school between 11 a.m. and noon to show their support.
Individual ceremonies will begin at 1 p.m., and will take place in the gymnasium and commons room.
And in Boston Bar, there are three graduates this year after a couple of years with no Grade 12 students. They are holding a special ceremony on May 31, beginning at 11 a.m., for those graduates that will include their scholarship and bursary award presentations, a welcome song from the school’s drum troupe, among other festivities.
Watch upcoming editions of The Standard for coverage of this year’s graduation ceremonies.
