Save the Dates!
Thursday, June 9th: Grad Walk @ the Dolphins
Our full graduating class will gather downtown at 5:30 pm for the traditional “graduation march” from the Dolphins to the entrance to the Grand Hotel. This outdoor event will take place in accordance with City of Kelowna health restrictions in place at the time. These will be communicated in advance to our students and families. After the march, students and families are encouraged to make individual plans for celebration and recognition.
Thursday, June 9th: Grad Formal @ the Laurel Packinghouse
In the spirit of a formal prom, we look forward to our graduating class celebrating together at this iconic Kelowna location. While details of this celebration are currently being finalized, we want to be sure that each graduate reserves this date in their calendar. An evening of music, appetizers, and the traditional elements we love so well - including toasts, the Grad Historian speech, and much more, will all be included. Once again, this event will be organized in accordance with health restrictions. Tickets for this event will be on sale in 2022. Our formal event is open to our graduating students only. We will require some parent volunteers to support, and will put a call out for this in early 2022.
Saturday, June 18th: Convocation @ Evangel Church
Finally, we look forward to our formal Commencement Ceremony during which each of our graduating students will cross the stage and receive their diploma. As most people know, in the last two years school commencement ceremonies have had to look different. We will again be organizing this event in accordance with restrictions, but will do our utmost to ensure that it reflects the formality and significance of this milestone for our students.

Grad 2022 Parent Meeting:
Grad Council: All of our grads have the opportunity to be a part of Grad Council, which is a 2 credit course. These students are an essential part of ensuring an excellent experience for all of our grads. They coordinate and organize a variety of events and activities for their peers. While we will need to think very creatively this year in particular, we are certain that they will be able to make memories together!

We encourage all of our grade 12s to attend to find out whether they want to be a part of this course.
