The Aftergrad event will take place following the ceremony on Tuesday, June 26 at the Gibsons community centre until 4:00am.

The grads will be transported to the centre by school van. During the evening there will be a large variety of entertainment, games, music, casino, silent auction, evening food, deserts and ending the night with breakfast and prizes.

This event is for Elphinstone grads only. They will be signed in at the door on arrival and once they are inside if they want to leave they are not allowed to return. Grads must be present in order to receive draw prizes.

All grads must arrange to be picked up at the end of the evening. Any misconduct during the evening (drinking, drugs, fighting) they will be asked to leave and parents called. We will arrange to have their bags with a change of clothes transported from the school and waiting for them at the centre.


We are looking for prize donation from parents and local businesses items such as small kitchen appliances, pots, pans, dishes, electronics, towels, camping gear, baskets and gift cards. If you have something to give please contact Roxanne at elphigrad2018@gmail.com or 778.858.1851. A list of businesses that have already donated can be found below:
