The procedure for Commencement tickets distribution is as follows:

  1. During the week of April 23-27, students can pick up two tickets when they purchase their tickets for the Grad Reception & Banquet. Commencement tickets are free of charge.
  2. Starting May 21, students can request an additional two tickets through the online request form. Since we are using a larger venue, our hope is that most requests can be accommodated. Tickets will be distributed on a “first-come, first-get” basis.
  3. After June 4, yet another two tickets can be requested and will be distributed as long as tickets are available. Again, the request will be through the online form.
  4. On the day of the event, June 18, any remaining tickets will be given to whoever requests them as long as there are tickets left.

Grad reception/banquet tickets will be sold April 23-26 at lunch in the multi purpose room. Check the day you’re able to buy tickets based on your last name. Grads with outstanding fees will not be permitted to purchase tickets until the fees have been paid.

What is Dry Grad?

Dry Grad is an event which provides students with a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment to celebrate their graduation. It is a fully supervised fun event, sponsored by the Parents, where the grads can party with their friends, be entertained and participate in a fun-filled, action-packed night of celebration.

When is it?

Grads will be taken from the hotel to the Rec Centre by bus with Grade 11 Parent chaperones and from then on will be the Grad Committees responsibility with help from current Grade 11 parents who will supervise the Dry Grad overnight .

The Dry Grad will begin at 10.30pm and will end at 4am
There are no in and out priviledges at the Dry Grad . We have security organized and parents will be called to collect any Grad who is under the influence of alcohol or anything else . Obviously we trust this will not be necessary.

At the end Grads must be picked up by a parent or another Grads parent. No one will be allowed to leave alone. Again this is to ensure you get home safely .

Who is organizing this event?

PARENTS of the graduating class are the primary organizers however they welcome volunteers from the Grade 11 class as well. There are a number of committees who still need volunteers and there is definitely a job that suits every parent.
